Something Ill: A Hip-Hop Odyssey comes to the Bluebird Theater on Thursday, September 27, offering local heads the chance to voyage through some of Denver's most progressive and intelligent urban-music arbiters. Headliner nGoMa, which features the nearly tantric interplay between rappers Dap and Reese, will be joined by DJ K-Nee, the Procussions and Dialektix (pictured), the combustible collective led by MCs Bussey, Jarvis and Mest-One. While each of the groups on the bill has its own style, Odyssey's artists are linked by a preoccupation with samples, scratches and smarts -- not to mention simply exploring the groove. We're pleased that Something Ill this way comes.
