Do not miss the penultimate night of The Program, the five-night showcase of Northwest hiphop. For one, it features Dyme Def, the only band that can challenge Blue Scholars, the reigning champions of the Seattle scene. Like the Scholars, Dyme Def has a sound you just can't miss, a big and hungry beat. As for Jake One, he is unstoppable. He has produced music for 50 Cent, Freeway, De La Soul, and every important local act. As for J.Pinder, he got next. (Neumo's, 925 E Pike St, 709-9467. 8 pm, $15 adv/$50 for all shows, all ages.
