Hip-hop laptop wizards Glitch Mob are bringing their jungle/electro/crunk/kitchen sink take on the junction of dance music and hip-hop to Colorado over the next few days. They're starting things off with a night at the Fox in Boulder tomorrow, then heading to the Church Thursday before visiting some of the lovely ski towns in the area. They should deliver some pretty cool sets of crazy mashed-up beats, rhymes and electronic sounds, and they're well worth checking out -- unless you agree with my friend Josh that they're just another bunch of white kids figuring out new ways to ruin hip-hop.
