Sage Francis, Free Moral Agents, B Dolan

When: Mon., June 21, 9:30 p.m. 2010

The embattled and polarizing Providence emcee Sage Francis is a lightning rod, both for criticism of his earnest and emotionally charged raw hip-hop and for the adoration of those looking for a little explanation as to why the world can be so tough—and an explanation as to if it's that way for everyone. "The Best of Times," the most stunning track on his often brilliant, highly collaborative new LP, LI(F)E, is bound to be some kid's suicide cure. Triumphantly scored by film composer Yann Tiersen, "The Best of Times" is a frank, stomach-turning look at how having a crush can feel like failure and how, if life is never perfect, at least you still know you're alive. It's nice to see Francis back in top form, love him or hate him. —Grayson Currin
