DJ Abilities, PremRock, Jake Spike, The Honorable Sleaze, Digipossum @ The Canal Club – $8 in advance/$12 at the door (order tickets HERE)
I hope RVA hip hop heads appreciate what a great time this is for live hip hop in this city. I can’t remember anytime before the last couple of years when there were so many great nationally-known artists coming through the city–to say nothing of how great the local scene is right now. It’s a great time to be alive and loving hip hop, and the arrival of DJ Abilities on a stage in this town tonight is just the latest example of why that’s true.
