…and this is Celebrate the Villain


When our conversation shifts to more explicitly philosophical topics, I can’t help but use the title I Guess Our Definition of Success is Just a Little Different as a starting point for the ultimate question: What is success? Knox’s response echoes sentiments found on the album.

“We feel a lot of people gauge success by wealth or popularity, which is nice, but we gauge it by personal growth,” he said. “Of course we want to make money and be recognized for what we do, but what means the most to us is making sure we are putting out a product we truly believe in. We are here to motivate and inspire, not just sell CDs and get Facebook fans.” A bold, and a bit perplexing, statement from a group about to release an LP that they hope will reach a larger audience than their previous effort.

Catch Truth and Choice in action, along with a host of regional hip-hop and DJ talent, this Saturday at Fitzgerald’s. Their live set, crackling with the same thoughtfully provocative energy as their recordings, is an experience to get lost in. But the real treat is in the challenges you’ll find on your way back.

Celebrate the Villain feat SpyMC, Core Gameface, Kree Villegas and more

$5-$8
9pm Sat, Jan 18
