"It's a hip-hop lover's dream," says Dallas Gutschenritter of the second-annual Guerilla Fest, to be held this weekend at his club, the Riot Room.

That's particularly true if old-school characters such as Slick Rick, Spice 1, PMD and MC Eiht (who will all perform) match your flavor of rap. Or if you're looking to brush up on local hip-hop talent: Gee Watts, the Popper, Heartfelt Anarchy, MilkDrop and Louiz Rip, plus dozens of others, will be doing their thing from Friday through Sunday. The fest was put together jointly by the Riot Room and Anarchy Movement, rapper James Christos' new venture.

"It went well when we debuted it last year, and we made some relationships through that process that were helpful in making this year bigger," Gutschenritter says of expanding from one day to three. "Some of these guys have never even played here. And a lot of these cats don't tour that much, if at all, anymore. So you might never have the opportunity to see a guy like Spice 1 anywhere in the Midwest again."

Friday and Saturday are the big nights - check the Facebook page for the full schedule - but there's also a wind-down party on Sunday, from 2 to 6 p.m. "A lot of the talent is sticking around to hang out on Sunday," Gutschenritter says. "So you might have Slick Rick just kind of hanging around at Riot Room all day. It might be pretty mind-blowing."
