Unknown Prophets tonight at First Avenue - video of the day
Tonight the local rap trio celebrates the release of their newest album, Le System D. An underground favorite (with emphasis on underground, as they've never gotten what we might call big), the group seems to be tackling something close to Linkin Park of late. But their complex lyrics are woven tightly around the instrumentals, and the result defies its nu-metal tendencies to become a lush blend of sounds. Check out this video, from their 2006 album The Road Less Traveled, read this profile from the print edition by Pete Scholtes, and show up tonight at First Avenue for their show. It kicks off at 5:30 p.m. and tickets are $10.
