Live/Concert

Mick Jenkins

When: Sun., Aug. 30, 7 p.m. 2015

Just when you think hip-hop has been snuffed out by a haze of Auto-tune and Internet rappers, Jenkins bursts onto the scene with content heavy-lyrics and live instrumentation. Raised on the largely segregated southside of Chicago, Jenkins’ searing lyricism reflects on societal truths and the human condition with little regard for commercial viability and “likes.” His latest EP, titled Waves is a nine-track gem that’s more melody driven and radio-friendly than his previous releases, but still just as determined to deliver a lasting message.Parisian electronic DJ and wunderkind, STWO, co-headlines.
