It's cold, it's dark, the holidays are over, and spring is nowhere in sight. Instead of schlubbing around the house worrying about seasonal affective disorder, trudge to Neurolux for the hippest night of hip-hop this side of the Great Divide.
Although they all blend various music and beats, Sleep is an illuminating example of how a great MC can take sounds from any and every genre, add thought-provoking lyrics and turn the whole thing into something that maintains the vibe of the original music but is also inherently hip-hop.
Let neither snow, nor rain, nor gloom of January stay you from the swift completion of a night of hip-hop enlightenment.
Saturday, Jan. 9, $8 adv., $10 door. Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., neurolux.com.
