Local heroes Zion-I are currently completing a West Coast swing in support of their hot new release, The Takeover. How nice of them to stop through Slim's on Friday before continuing on to points East, including Chicago, Michigan, Vermont, New York, and Ontario.
Their Slim's show should be off the chain, however, for a couple of reasons. First of all, Zion-I's live set is legendary. Nuff said. But do pay close attention to the undercard, an all-local bill featuring next-level acts The Kev Choice Ensemble, Trackademicks, and BRWN BFLO (a dope Latino hip-hop crew outta the biggity biggity O whose self-titled debut album drops on Cinco De Mayo. They're also playing at the Uptown on May 2nd). It's unlikely that you'll find a better combination of musical and lyrical talent, energy, and consciousness on a hip-hop bill anywhere, so don't sleep!
