Playing Around: Accumen

Join Accumen as they rock the high-minded brand of hip-hop with the kind of conviction that you can only get from being bombarded by a culture of mediocrity. Subtle, smooth beats float this impressive lyrical presence through songs about love, loneliness, abandonment and equality. Accumen replaces the usual hip-hop name checks (i.e., my Benz, my mansion, my bitches) to give shout-outs to his grandma, his brother and his fans. They even find time to tell the kids to say off drugs, avoid liquor, and to trust no one in a single sentence. Match this up with his crew's lines about the Illuminati and Freemasons and you've got a hip-hop show that will make your head bop while respecting what it's holding. Summers Down, Distant Warning and Blue Sun round out the evening. Call 532-0560 for more.
