CANCELLED—sad!—find other shows tonight over here!
It is fair to say that you will find no better way to spend this evening than watching and listening to the legendary Japanese hiphop/triphop producer DJ Krush. Not only is he a great turntablist, but he also successfully fused Japanese aesthetic sensibilities (particularly the sense of impermanence and ghostliness) with that original American boom-bap. DJ Krush, who paid his dues back in the days of Rock Steady Crew and Zulu Nation, has produced wicked tracks for top rappers like Black Thought (of the Roots), Mos Def, and CL Smooth. DJ Krush’s 2002 album Shinsou “The Message at the Depth” is a hiphop masterpiece. (Neumos, 925 E Pike St, neumos.com, 8 pm, $18 adv, 21+)
