Digable Planets, Camp Lo

When: Sun., July 24, 8:30 p.m. 2016

Before this year’s reunion tour, Butterfly, Ladybug Mecca, and Doodlebug, of the jazz-sampling hip-hop trio Digable Planets, hadn’t performed together since an uninspiring 2011 shot at rebirth. But the real fracture happened over twenty years ago, following the Brooklyn outfit’s 1994 LP, Blowout Comb. The record was a radically styled and composed B-boy treatise, ceremoniously in opposition to the group’s safer, jazz-abiding debut, Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space). In the years since, each member has forged their own solo path, with IshPalaceer Lazaro’s (real name: Ishmael Butler) Shabazz Palaces the most formidable of the three. —Eric Tullis

Price: $22-$25
