Tonight DJ Premier spins at the Shrine
; tickets are only $10 (with a $1.99 service charge). It's a good price for one of the legends of contemporary music, a producer who's done tracks for Illmatic
, Ready to Die
, Reasonable Doubt
, Return of the Boom Bap
, Like Water for Chocolate
, and the forthcoming Good Ass Job
("really boom-bap, hard, hard beats"
). Veteran Chicago producer/DJ Tone B. Nimble
opens; the excellent fan site djpremierblog
has a host of DJ Premier mixtapes, including his Malcolm McLaren tribute.
