Tonight in Music: Blue Scholars & Metric

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Mon, Dec 3, 2012 at 11:42 AM


BLUE SCHOLARS, BROTHERS FROM ANOTHER, THE PHYSICS
(Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE Cesar E. Chavez) The country's best politically savvy, working-class hiphop duo, Blue Scholars, are back in town. The talented pair makes their home base in South Seattle ("the most ethnically diverse zip code in America," they're proud to say) and can make even a rap about riding the bus catchy and poignant. SARAH MIRK


METRIC, SHADOWS ON STARS
(Roseland, 8 NW 6th) Synthetica, Metric's latest album, is a journey through youth and an examination of the gritty, beautiful, and painful experience of living and dying. It was a long road for Metric, but the success of their new release guarantees their shows will sell out for the immediate future (like maybe starting now). CARA MICO
