The self-proclaimed "b-boy d-boy" Muja Messiah has been a prominent figure in the local scene longer than you've been potty trained, but with some recent moves making noise outside of our claustrophobic borders, he may soon head for greener pastures. This show celebrates the release of his mixtape MPLS Murder, a loose collection of bangers (featuring Web favorites like "Amy Winehouse" and the I Self Devine-assisted "Patriot Act") preceding a proper summer release that'll be louder than a bomb. The disc is free with admission, so if you still don't download, that's a hell of a deal. He also has the goodwill to bring friends like up-and-comers M.anifest and Maria Isa to the party, making this a very late Christmas present. 18+.
