Mic Mechanics Battle 

Friday, December 17, at the Bottleneck.

It is possible to prepare for a battle competition that requires spontaneous rhymes. Rap into the mirror. Work on your free-association skills. Eat your carbs. But fledgling microphone fiends will need plenty of practice, practice, practice tactics for this Mic Mechanics Battle -- they'll be stepping into the ring against area veterans such as Approach, Mac Lethal, S.H.A.D.O.W. Judges spot and disqualify any participants who take the stage with memorized material. DJs Slugworth and Sku dish out beats, forcing MCs to adapt on the fly to the pace and tone of the backdrop. The winner takes home $600; second place scores ramen noodles. And the amateurs unprepared for the high-pressure environment? Just don't stand too close when they upchuck their mom's spaghetti.
