I have a sneaking suspicion this will be a great show. With the exception of last year's Sound set, all the Atmosphere shows I've seen over the past couple years have generally been the same set, sound, and vibe replayed over and over. I get that the live band fits the direction they are taking their music, but I'd kill to see a show with Slug, Ant, two turntables and a microphone. That would be fukcing GOLD. Unfortunately (for me at least), that seems to be the opposite direction they're going in.
It really doesn't matter what Atmosphere does at this point. Ant could start playing the Sitar, Slug could start rapping in sign language. and the kids would eat it up year after year until they calls it quits....They are just too cool for school.
Ali is automatic...can't wait for the new album this year..
Thee Adventures of a B Boy D Boy is still getting steady rotation in my iPod. Muja is nice, and he'll bring a different element to this performance that would otherwise be lacking.
Minnesota Hip Hop is looking real strong right now. This will be a great show. Bank it. If you aren't keen to Minnesota hip hop, or are trying to bring someone around, try to get tickets to this show. I seriously doubt you will be disappointed.
I hope all four of you Minnesota cats on here appreciate my take..lol. I'm pretty green leafed right now...excuse my long-windedness.
That is all,
