Buffalo Hip Hop Lives: The Restoration
by Artvoice Staff (@Artvoice) - posted 10:00 pm, March 4, 2010
Headlining this jazzy hip/hop line up are last year’s B.O.O.M. winners Type: Relevant (pictured), with a show on the very same night (Friday, March 5). Type: Relevant will be rocking with the Trinidadian-born, preeminent Canadian jazz trumpet player Brownman Ali, and local hip-hop fusion group Catastrophic, for what doubles as the latter’s CD release party. The long-awaited, five-year-in-the-making album is titled The Restoration, a follow-up to the duo’s only other recorded work on 2002’s now-classic Cinemaddicts album Notes from the Underground, and Catastrophic’s debut recording on their own. Hip-hop in Buffalo could use a little “restoration,” it seems, and this is just the evening to fuel that effort. DJ Cutler rounds out the bill.
