With Skelethon, his sixth solo album in 15 years and his first for Rhymesayers, Aesop Rock delivered one of the best albums in a long and busy career – and one of the best alt-rap records in a year that didn’t lack for them. That was in 2012, and his 2013 looks to be just as high-profile, boasting an upcoming collaboration with Kimya Dawson (The Uncluded’s Hokey Fright) and rumors of a follow-up to the delirious 2011 release Are You Gonna Eat That?, the debut project featuring Aes and cohorts Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz (who also perform tonight). With Busdriver. 18+.
