9th Wonder & Phonte, Median, Rapsody, Away Team, HaLo, DJ Flash

When: Sun., Oct. 23, 9 p.m. 2011

On New Year's Day, hip-hop heads awoke from their hangovers to discover an encouraging photo among their Twitter feeds: 9th Wonder and Phonte, former friends and Little Brother members turned enemies and social media sparring partners, were together in the same room, reunited. Since then, collaborations have been sparse and appropriately unpredictable (particularly "Base for Your Face" with Web weirdo Lil B), culminating in appearances on each other's solo albums (Phonte's Charity Starts at Home, 9th's The Wonder Years), released on the same day last month. Now they're touring together. And yeah, attending means you're witnessing Triangle rap history, but instead of requesting your favorite Little Brother song, try living in the moment, OK? Shout out a recent track, such as Phonte's 9th-produced recession rap banger "Good Fight," instead. These guys are complex, ever-evolving rap artists still putting out excellent music—and let's allow them to stay that way, no matter the politics. Also on the bill are Median, Rapsody, the Away Team, HaLo and DJ Flash. —Brandon Soderberg
