Orchestra of Strange Tour

by

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.

The Orchestra of Strange Tour brings with it Sleep of Oldominion and The Chicharones, DJ Zone, B. Dolan, Doomtree's Cecil Otter--all on Strange Famous Records--and Rocket One.

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.
