This week in post-Pop hip hop

Flatbush Zombies, Artbeat 9 and more shows and DJ nights you need to know about

shineI’m hardly recovered from the events of last weekend. I even had to sit out the much-anticipated Danny Brown show, even, but he’ll be back, and Cult MTL‘s Erik Leijon and Cindy Lopez went in my place. See their takes here.

Have a great weekend and week ahead, kids, and if I finally feel ready to join you out there for more, see you around one of these spots:
