Power Trip & Antwon

When: Sun., April 24, 1 p.m. 2016

If you hate brunch — its Sunday-consuming hours and hungover company — consider indulging in Paper Tiger’s afternoon special of thrash and hip-hop. From Dallas, Power Trip is a heaving quartet capable of speed metal’s breakneck shredding and thrash’s ill-tempered snarl. Rooted in hardcore (he lives with Trash Talk’s Lee Spielman and fronted the Philadelphia punk band Leather), Antwon (pictured) is rap’s poet laureate of sex and depression, finding countless (and often hilarious) topics for his bass-rattling, Biggie-like voice. With his new EP Double Ecstasy, Antwon finds a welcome home on the progressive Anticon label.
