Doomtree Blowout @ First Avenue

From Saturday's A-List: ""I think if you're not angry at something, living in America right now, then you're not paying enough attention," said Doomtree's Dessa in City Pages last year, and more than swing voters seem to have come around to that viewpoint. Once a cottage industry of home-burned EPs and punk-friendly local shows, the Doomtree hip-hop collective now looms as a national subculture, with P.O.S. putting forward underground rap's best new pierced face--giggling, radicalized, hungry for the next adventurous beat. The other dozen-odd Doomtreers--including MCs Mike Mictlan, Sims, and Cecil Otter--each put their distinct stamps on this sensibility, and watching the personalities in collaborative flux is a treat live. With forthcoming albums galore, much of tonight's music will be new, with the added bonus of a fleet of breakdancers, happening-like visuals and decor, surprise guests (friends in Rhymesayers?), and a charitable cause, with 10 percent of proceeds going to People Serving People, one of the largest providers of emergency housing in Minnesota."
