In 1987 Public Enemy's single "Bring the Noise" made the case that rap is a legitimate form of music, and nearly 30 years later no one is arguing. But the genre "noise" still sits in the margins of the music community, virtually unmarketable to mainstream audiences. Local artist and promoter Jeremy Kannapell doesn't pay much attention to those things, though. He only cares about bringing great performers to town. We met with him to talk about booking and the shows he's working on in the coming weeks, including post-punk legend Daniel Higgs, Timeghost and more.
