Radio Battle Tuesday: B L A C K I E vs. KTRU [9/08/2008 02:57:00 PM]:
Cool one tomorrow evening... As part of Tuesday's KTRU Local Show
, host Ian has thrown down the glove
to local destructo-hip-hop hero B L A C K I E
, who'll be doing an actual live set downstairs from the KTRU studios in the Rice Student Center
courtyard while Ian channels it all live out onto the airwaves.
If you can't be there live and in person, tune in from 8-10PM at 91.7 FM, but if you're brave enough to show up, you're in for something truly bizarre. If you've read this site much lately, you'll know that I'm becoming a biiiig fan of B L A C K I E -- he really has to be seen/experienced to be believed. Loud, crushing, skull-rattling beats plus weird, murky, Negativland-esque samples plus mad-as-hell lyrics half-growled into a fucked-up mic by a guy who looks like he's rapping in some personal hell only he can perceive. It's really, really strange.
Hell, the show'll be worth it just to see the looks on the faces of all the unsuspecting Rice kids meandering through...
