City Planner: Friday 10/27
Stones Throw 10th Anniversary Tour @ Triple Rocktoday's A-List: "There's indie rap, and then there's Stones Throw. The imprint that gave us Madvillain and Quasimoto also released a good number of rare funk reissues (from The Funky 16 Corners to Kashmere Stage Band's high school blowout Texas Thunder Soul), outsider weirdo-soul (Gary Wilson, Dudley Perkins), new-school underground East Coast hustlers (Roc 'C', MED), and the best sample-based record in the last five years (J Dilla's final epic, the overwhelming Donuts). You can pick up the recent comp Chrome Children for a good cross section of where Stones Throw's at in '06, but it's also worth catching this live show. Label founder Peanut Butter Wolf serves as tour guide on the turntables, with appearances from Madlib (article here), Percee P, and other top-flight underground MCs."
