Ludacris might be a completely sane, polite, business-savvy person
in real life, but frankly, we prefer the bling-swingin', haunches-obsessed ruffian he plays on stage. (Or, as Bill O'Reilly called him, the "vile thug." They later made up
.) The vile thug/Chris Bridges/Luda hits the Slim's stage
(of all places) on August 8 -- putting him blunt-passing distance from his public. We've seen Luda before and he's as wild and fun as you'd expect -- at least that's what our hazy memory says. Tickets for the Slim's show go on sale this Sunday. No word on whether Luda's female dance troupe will be in tow for the S.F. date, but you might as well start amassing Phillies now anyway.
