City Planner: Weekend Edition (12/16-17)
Mr. Dibbs & DJ Abilities @ Triple RockSaturday's A-List: "Dibbs: Cincy native, occasional Atmosphere DJ, metal as fuck, recruited by El-P to provide scratches on his upcoming album I'll Sleep When You're Dead, co-founder of the annual hip-hop geek-fest Scribble Jam, and owner of the most vicious goatee to ever hover over the wheels of steel. Abilities: Reps Minneapolis, regional champ at the DMC DJ battle contest in '99 and '01, turntablist half of local super-scientific battle-rap monster Eyedea & Abilities, recruited by El-P to provide scratches on his last album, Fantastic Damage, mixtape fiend, and possibly a ninja. Both DJs on the same bill: Batten down the hatches, for the love of God."
