November is shaping up to be a great month at the Hi-Tone, with plenty of national acts making tour stops in addition to a whole slew of locals performing as well. If you're a fan of hip-hop, hardcore punk, or experimental music, then the show at the Hi-Tone tonight might already be on your radar. If not, here's the rundown.
is the project of Quinton-JeVon Lee, the Memphis musician who frequently collaborates with Cities Aviv. Lee doesn't perform very often, and normally prefers DIY or unorthodox venues over places with an actual stage, making this Hi-Tone show that much more appealing.
Joining RPLD GHSTS is B L A C K I E
(real name Michael LaCour), the Houston, Texas musician who melds noise, jazz, and hardcore into a frightening cyclone of aggressive output. This is B L A C K I E 's first time in Memphis, but his connections to Cities Aviv and RPLD GHSTS run deep.
Also on the bill is Gimp Teeth
, the Memphis hardcore band that recently released their self-titled cassette. Rumors are circulating that Gimp Teeth will have a single out soon, and their tape should be available at Thursday's show. If you're into music that can't be categorized by simple,one-word genres, get to the Hi-Tone tonight (Thursday, November 5th) by 9 p.m., $8 gets you in.
