Broken Social Scene
Land of Talk
Tuesday, October 21, 2008

BSS is well known for an almost chaotic composition of music influenced by the eclectic backgrounds of the musicians, but to most the soundscape they create is nothing short of masterful, beautiful, and fun.

Paint the Nation Tour w/
Atmosphere
Abstract Rude
Blueprint
DJ Rare Groove
Wednesday, October 8, 7PM
Eleven years after becoming the first hip-hop act to put the Twin Cities on the map, Atmosphere has grown into one of the most accomplished MC/producer duos around. Between Slug and Ant, they’ve released six albums, 11 Sad Clown tour albums and various side-projects like Felt — amounting in well over a million units sold. And along the way have performed to sold-out crowds everywhere from modest sized venues in their hometown to colossal festivals in Japan. Since releasing their 1997 debut, Overcast!, Ant’s ASR-born melodic beats and Slug’s open book and observational style of rapping continues to evolve into hip-hop that’s more honest — more textured. And the praise for these Rhymesayers pioneers hasn’t stopped flowing in.
Advance: $17.50 / Day of Show: $20

Beginning with music in the mid 90’s, Mos Def found himself to be one of the primary hip-hop artists leading a charge from back alley rhymes to featured spots on radio and MTV. This is one performance not to be missed here at Toad’s Place of Richmond where we welcome Mos Def to our line-up “Where the Legends Play.”
