Open Mike Eagle's recent album Dark Comedy stands as one of the year's best so far, deftly juggling thought-provoking lyrics, skillful flows, and a comedic approach to create a wholly compelling listen. He also runs his own podcast, Secret Skin, where he talks about some of the behind-the-scenes aspects of independent artistry.
This weekend, you'll get the chance to see him as a hip-hop performer -- during the P.O.S.-curated Fucking Best Show Ever, alongside Le1f, Busdriver, SZA, and more. He'll also be in town as a podcast conversationalist during Greenroom Magazine's Issue 3 release, featuring a live recording of the podcast Shots Fired alongside guests P.O.S. and Dam Funk. Gimme Noise spoke with Open Mike Eagle about his various projects and this weekend's show.More »
