"Power of the Tongue Vol 2" with Thee Tom Hardy, Tab-One, DRUGS, Lazurus, Illpo, Tuscon, DJ Shahzad 

When: Thu., June 6, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $6-8

In the three months since this series' inaugural showcase, a few local emcees have released important hip-hop projects, including Cable in the Classroom by Kourvioisier, who was on that first bill back in March. The lineup for this second installment features reinvented ex-Jamla emcee Thee Tom Hardy, Kooley High chill-factor Tab-One and a "beat display set" by producer D.R.U.G.S., whose obsession with flipping sweet samples yields some mean music. Lazurus, Illpo, Tuscon and DJ Shahzad also join the bill. Between that recent string of records (which included GQ's Death Threats and Love Notes and Wreck-N-Crew's 2AM) and showcases such as this, perhaps Triangle hip-hop is again mustering more than a heartbeat. —Eric Tullis
