Dead Prez, Shirlette Ammons 

When: Wed., Nov. 16, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $25
It’s no coincidence that the pro-black hip-hop duo Dead Prez, which delivered the groundbreaking militant Let’s Get Free LP in 2000, is resurfacing at the height of the Black Lives Matter movement and during the sendoff of the nation’s first black president. Yes, it’s still bigger than “Hip-Hop,” and “We Want Freedom,” remains a mantra that rings true for many of and M-1’s fans. If Dead Prez burns an American flag on stage, as they’ve done at past shows, consider it a revolutionary act of truth-telling rather than treason. —Eric Tullis
