Michael Christmas & Sylvan LaCue

When: Thu., Oct. 18, 7:30 p.m. 2018

More like a modern-day Biz Markie and less like the bravado-heavy SoundCloud breed of rappers, Michael Christmas is self-deprecating, honest-to-a-fault and silly, sounding like a breath of fresh air as he raps and sings over happy-go-lucky beats about awkwardness and grilled cheese. The artist formerly known as QuESt, Sylvan LaCue waxes reflective poetry over chill beats, proving that raw emotion is just as important to the rap game as boasts.

Price: $15-$50
