If you're not doing anything on Sunday night, the Basementalism crew are hosting a Christmas party at Herb's Hideout (2057 Larimer St.) probably starting around 9 p.m. The party, which is being thrown by the LIFEHouse squad, is celebrating Colorado MC who have performed at the monthly "Everybody Eats" hip-hop showcase. DJs Cysko Rokwel, Amen and Es-Nine will be on the ones and two spinning nothing but Colorado hip-hop all night. Oh yeah, and there's no cover and a plethora of giveaways. Come through and meet the players of the Colorado hip-hop scene. - Quibian Salazar-Moreno
