City Planner: Friday 10/27
Stones Throw 10th Anniversary Tour @ Triple Rock
: "There's indie rap, and then there's Stones Throw. The imprint that gave us Madvillain and Quasimoto also released a good number of rare funk reissues (fromThe Funky 16 Corners
to Kashmere Stage Band's high school blowout Texas Thunder Soul
), outsider weirdo-soul (Gary Wilson, Dudley Perkins), new-school underground East Coast hustlers (Roc 'C', MED), and the best sample-based record in the last five years (J Dilla's final epic, the overwhelmingDonuts
). You can pick up the recent compChrome Children
for a good cross section of where Stones Throw's at in '06, but it's also worth catching this live show. Label founder Peanut Butter Wolf serves as tour guide on the turntables, with appearances from Madlib (articlehere
), Percee P, and other top-flight underground MCs."
