Best Reason to Go Out on the Fourth Friday of the Month

The Corner

Candidt, the swami of the local hip-hop scene, founded his monthly showcase of Seattle's extensive rap talent, "The Corner," with the idea of mixing the well-known with the unknown. Held monthly at the Jewel Box Theater inside the Rendezvous, the event is an in-your-face live concert–meets–house party, featuring the kind of no-holds-barred performances given only by those who've yet to hit the big time. So, yeah, it's heated by passionate energy. During any given edition, you'll catch the local scene's klieg-lit names rhyming on the same stage with those whose reps have yet to extend much beyond the borders of their bedroom studios. And that, more than the free-flowing booze, is what makes Candidt's creation fun.—Kevin Capp
