The Underachievers with Denzel Curry and Dillon Cooper at Pop's Nightclub
7 p.m. / $15-$22
Riding the high (pun-intended) off their two 2013 critically acclaimed mixtapes -- Indigoism and Lords of Flatbush -- the Underachievers are currently on tour to promote their 2014 debut album The Cellar Door (aptly called the Cellar Door Tour). Though the duo isn't as widely known as its Pro Era associates, the Underachievers were signed to Flying Lotus' label Brainfeeder in 2012. Like Joey Bada$$, the duo's sound resembles old school New York hip-hop, but with a psychedelic hip-hop twist.
St. Louis group Souls of Liberty recently dropped its third album, 10,000 Hours, this past March. In celebration of the event, the group is playing a show with local acts MME, J'Demul, Jockey Blaze, Subtle Aggression and Kansas City-native Gee Watts. If you're not familiar with local hip-hop, then this show is your best bet, as it's a true showcase of the best that Missouri rap has to offer. Arrive early to catch all the acts.
