411 is a joke

One of the most cheek-biting circumstances I’ve found myself in over years of covering hip hop is this all-too-typical exchange with friends:
Friend: Hey, what are you doing tonight?
Me: Going to see “Rapper X-Y-Z.”
Friend: X-Y-Z is in town?!? Why didn’t you tell me?!?
Me: Oh, sorry, you’re right! I only interviewed him, published it in a newspaper, reminded people in my column in said newspaper, spammed the entire Internet with the content — but yeah, sorry I didn’t call.
But okay, so, attention spans being what they are in this day and age, I can’t get too self-righteous. Instead, I thought I would take the time this week to put a few upcoming events on your fall concert radar. As they approach, expect more in-depth coverage, but start planning now for some crazy ish.
