6/2: DJ Premier at the Shrine



Tonight DJ Premier spins at the Shrine; tickets are only $10 (with a $1.99 service charge). It's a good price for one of the legends of contemporary music, a producer who's done tracks for Illmatic, Ready to Die, Reasonable Doubt, Return of the Boom Bap, Like Water for Chocolate, and the forthcoming Good Ass Job ("really boom-bap, hard, hard beats"). Veteran Chicago producer/DJ Tone B. Nimble opens; the excellent fan site djpremierblog has a host of DJ Premier mixtapes, including his Malcolm McLaren tribute.
