12 December | Capitol | More information
Make sure you head on to Capitol for one last gig and dance before it closes in January for major renovations, and if you need some help deciding how to say farewell, you couldn’t do better than Dead Prez. As one of the most respected hip hop outfits in the game, MCs Stic.man and M-1’s music focuses on calling out the social ills around us, like consumerism, sexism and homophobia. The duo doesn’t pull punches and deliver a live show that’s high energy, socially conscious and featuring real dope beats.
