Indie music snob godfather and hipster mecca site, Pitchfork, kinda blew SEC’s cover on this one by announcing that Action Bronson and Danny Brown will be performing at Skidmore College on October 4th. This is big news for a big show. The two up-and-coming lyricists are the first big hip hop acts to grace campus since Blue Scholars tore up the Spa and the first hip hop Big Show since Dead Prez three years ago. These are two relevant, innovative artists teaming up on a countrywide tour, and we’re the only New York show, not to mention the day before they hit Rock The Bells. So yeah, get psyched. No half-assing this one, Skidmore. The gym better be full and it better be lively, cause this sort of stacked line up doesn’t happen too often.
But, I understand that there are some of you jazz heads and indie rock die-hards who have no clue who these cats are or what their music sounds like, and so, to bring you in the loop, we’ve put together a run-down of who these guys are, what they offer, and where to find their music. Study up, cause these guys aren’t fucking around.
