Duck Down 15-Year Anniversary Tour 

When: Sat., Oct. 16, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $20-23

For any record label, 15 years is tough; given industry trends, for an independent hip-hop label the tenure seems damn near impossible. In the case of Duck Down Records, luck likely has less to do with survival than the creative freedom CEO Dru Ha has long given to his diverse roster. Consider the talent pool of this anniversary showcase: There are few things in rap as entertaining as the Brownsville, Brooklyn emcee Sean Price throwing ape-like punch lines at a roomful of fans geeked by his equally insulting and comedic lyrical brawn. If you prefer a more technical emcee, you'll be blown away by the performance of another rhyme exhibitionist and recent Duck Down signee, Pharoah Monche. His multisyllabic word flurries are a lesson in hyperpoetic convention. For something a bit less difficult, DJ Evil Dee offers his loud throwback set on the turntables. Punch in with him when it's time to yell the classic tagline, "Evil Dee is on the mix, come on kick it!" Boot Camp Clik members Buckshot and Smif-N-Wessun and Jamla/Duck Down artists Skyzoo and The Away Team also perform on this leg of Duck Down's 15-Year Anniversary tour. —Eric Tullis
