Cannibal Ox, Liam Tracy (Back Room)

When: Tue., Oct. 20, 9 p.m. 2015

Well before El-P ran the jewels with Killer Mike, the Company Flow co-founder raised the bar for underground hip-hop with his Def Jux imprint. Perhaps the label’s most legendary record, Cannibal Ox’s The Cold Vein introduced a new strain of rap music so captivating and alien that each listen still brings new rewards. Unfortunately, it took another 14 years for a proper follow-up. Blade of the Ronin may not please every graying backpacker, but the duo still brings profound wordplay and far-out ideas to the mic. —Gary Suarez
