Ghostface Killah, Adrian Younge's Venice Dawn, Supastition 

When: Thu., May 16, 9:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $20-23
It's not exactly novel to call a Ghostface Killah record vicious: From his drug talk to his sex jokes, from his grand self-mythologizing to his complex character constructions, Ghostface Killah's albums have generally arrived fierce and focused, like back-alley shakedowns. But as the title implies, 12 Reasons to Die—Ghostface's new full-length collaboration with composer Adrian Younge—is a musical bloodbath, where ex-lovers die in crimes of passion and enemies meet their ends in simple assaults or gruesome abattoir scenarios. Rather than echo the sentiment with the music, these tunes slither through restless drums and distant guitars, ominous piano and fist-to-chest organ. Live, Ghostface shows can tread toward orgies; perhaps with Younge's Venice Dawn in the support role, he'll get through some of this stunning material before the eruption. With Supastition. —Grayson Currin
