Cannibal Ox, Kenyattah Black, Irealz

When: Sun., July 21, 9 p.m. 2013

Given that electropop duo The Postal Service reunited this year to pay 10-year tribute to the only album it ever made, the return of Cannibal Ox—the grimy and defiant duo of rappers Vast Aire and Vordul Mega—seems appropriate. They also made only one album, 2001's The Cold Vein, and like The Postal Service's Give Up, it's considered a landmark in its field. It was the first LP on El-P's new label and a galvanizing moment for independent music. Its songs left no referential stone unturned, and its demented sense of tag-team rapping still wows a dozen years later. With Kenyattah Black, Irealz and Tuscon. —Grayson Currin
