ShowYouSuck, Ebony Tusks, Greg Enemy, Audiocloud 51 

When: Fri., Aug. 24, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: cover at door
One of the more fascinating aspects of hip-hop’s evolution in recent years is the way it has absorbed, and been absorbed by, a subculture previously defined by indie-rock music. You can see this osmosis in effect with characters like the members of Chicago's ShowYouSuck who, like this show's openers Greg Enemy and Ebony Tusks, wear plaid clothing and jean jackets. (And not baggy jean jackets like Dr. Dre would wear in a Dr Pepper commercial; I mean the type of form-fitting, smartly aged kind worn by people who hang out at the Replay.) Aesthetically, ShowYouSuck values fashion and humor — a recent mixtape is titled One Man Pizza Party 2: Mo Slices Mo Problems — over street cred and boasts, and fans of Das Racist ought to find his clever party-rap endearing.
