Before the womp-womp of dubstep, there was the brap-brap of drum-and-bass. Tonight, Beauty & the Bass brings drum-and-bass back to the forefront, with massive sounds provided by local movement heads Despise, Fresh Breath Committee's DJ Skip Rip, and Nofrendo -- whose multiple sonic talents we profiled last summer -- on the decks.
MCs CrookKid and FBC's Catch Lungs will also be on hand to lay some lyrics over the tracks on wax. This party promises to be one Wednesday-night banger, where dubsteppers, drum-and-bass heads and junglists unite in the name of low-end syncopation. New to the style? Check out and download Nofrendo's "Junglist Til I Die" for a taste of the evening's bass-driven expections. This event is 21-and-up, and admission is free. Doors open at 9 p.m.
