When: Sun., Feb. 22, 8 p.m. 2015
MOCAD continues to book some of the most fun, provocative shows, with this evening of left-field hip-hop clearly a highlight of their new season of music events. Cakes Da Killa, a young and openly gay rapper, has been often compared to Lil’ Kim with good reason. Appearing with Cakes is producer and DJ UNIIQU3, a pioneering Jersey-based hip-hop artist. Opening artist Miz Korona is one of Detroit’s biggest and best, bar none. Get to this show early. And now that they have their new bar up and running, you don’t have to worry about being properly liquored up during the show, if that’s your thing.
