Most notably, the show supports Atmosphere's sixth LP The Family Sign, which also happens to be their first full-length in three years (following the acclaimed When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold). After over a decade of music and ascendance to the forefront of indie hip-hop as arguably the niche's most successful and longstanding artists, the latest release sees the duo of rapper Slug and producer/DJ Ant trying to grow up--the same angst, just redirected. Uplifting Family Sign most certainly is not, but one would be hard-pressed to find something more deeply personal.
Tickets for the all-ages show run $30 (though, after convenience fees, that number balloons to $43), and all the details are available via ReignCity.
In related news: Atmosphere's Rhymesayers labelmates (and Seattleites) Grieves and Budo drop their debut with the label, Together/Apart, tomorrow, following tonight's all-ages release show at Neumos. Says label co-founder Brent "Siddiq" Sayers of Grieves:
"He's an extreme talent, and I think over the next few years, people will really start to see that. I believe that he took what he's been working on and really developed over that last couple of years, and really put that into this record. This year will definitely be a really strong breakout year for him."
