Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic, Busdriver, DJ Big Wiz

When: Wed., April 24, 8 p.m. 2013

After postponing his January show due to a broken rib, Aesop Rock is back for a rescheduled date with cohorts Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz. Aesop—born Ian Matthais Bavitz—released his sixth album, Skelethon, last summer, and it's a showcase for his prodigious flow, offering a steady stream of images and ideas, akin to poring through a cluttered junk shop, or cleaning out a dead grandmother's basement, or head-scratching your way through a recent Pynchon novel. But sifting through Skelethon is all of the fun, and its hooks—subtle pinpricks at first—turn into full-fledged barbs, refusing to let go. Busdriver's on the bill, too, perhaps the only emcee who's capable of stuffing more imagery and sound into a single track than Aesop. NED LANNAMANN
