Kool Keith - Emo's Lounge - September 23, 2006

Dr. Octagon, AKA Kool Keith, AKA Black Elvis (or rather, should it be the other way around... Elvis should be the White Dr. Octagon... ya hurd ;) coming to Emo's Lounge on Sept. 23rd... also on-stage will be Clever Monkeys, Word Association, and DJ Notion!

Funny story... I'm chillin at home the other day... I get out of the shower and I'm butt neked... I'm usually clothed but since my A/C is still out, I decided to stay butt neked... it's cooler that way ;) Anyways... my door guy, JR, decides that he's gonna barge into my place cuz there's a gas leak somewhere... I'm sittin on the couch with the laptop on my nads as he rushes in... and I'm like WTF... noticeably shocked and nervous, JR runs in and checks my stove and runs out... lol... maybe you had to be there... :)

More info:

An original member of New York's new-school pioneers the Ultramagnetic MCs, Thornton is best known as a solo rapper. His signature style is stream-of-consciousness lyrical flow and complex vocals, two skills that earn him a perennial nod from the underground hip-hop community. The average Kool Keith album is peppered with bizarre, disjointed, even delusional or disassociated themes, concepts, and references. Nearly all of his albums incorporate a satirical dislike for more commercialized strains of hip-hop, as well as major record labels.
