One.Be.Lo .
Darkside, 2106 E. Platte Ave. Tuesday, July 19, 8 p.m.

$10, 18 and up; tickets available at the door

It's hard to know what moniker Nashid Sulaiman would acknowledge if you called him out on the street, but "One.Be.Lo" -- as opposed to the mouthful OneManArmy of Binary Star -- is likely to stick since the release of s.o.n.o.g.r.a.m. This album is the product of Lo's hip-hop venture outside of Binary Star, which split in 2000. Lo's flow rides high above the beats, and his lyrical intelligence is on par with "conscientious" rappers like Mos and Talib. He's toured with Midwest rhyming brethren Atmosphere and Company Flow, and is currently in the Vans Warped Tour line-up. Tonight, Lo takes a breather from the big gig to headline the Darkside, following DJ Lazy Eyez and New Mexico MCs Physics and Perish. Give Lo a listen at onebelo.com.
