Saakred


The Great N.I.S., a lyrical hip-hop artist and producer, and the organizing mind that pulled these diverse bands together for the show, will kick off the evening with his TMI personal diatribes.

"I'm sure others have gotten stabbed in the back and cheated or lied to so many can relate," he says of his songs. "I just do it in a funny, vulgar way because of the hurt and pain." Backing NIS (which stands for Nothing Is Something) will be experimental DJs dtronik and Apeshit, an extremely versatile and technically brilliant team that in their own shows play "dubby crunk-tronica and illmatic electro."

So if you're still pining because you missed Bruce Springsteen at the SXSW this year, smack your face, scream, chant or rap three times, "music is about creativity, not celebrity; about musicians, not the industry," and then go see this show. •

Saakred feat. The Offbeats, the Zukinis, Búho, The Great NIS, dtronik, DJ Apeshit
