Tuesday’s Music

Louis Logic.

Giving you the music a day early:

Need a brief introduction to underground hip-hop artist Louis Logic? Check out his “Idiot Gear” from his 2003 album Sin-a-Matic where he reinforces his public persona as a failure with the women by kicking off the tune with a quote from Chasing Amy. In actuality though, Logic is an accomplished MC and songwriter, whose humor and down-on-his-luck personality is also blended with a street-smart commentary on today’s world. But, he also is a musical wanderer, flirting with a fusion of surf and hip hop in his band Spork Kills, and studying voice, piano and music theory so he could play piano and rap. Now the hip-hip anti-hero has teamed with fellow fringe hip-hop artist Ceschi Ramos for a tour where Logic unveils his “one-man variety show” hip hop on the South of the Border Tour, including a stop at Stickyz. The opening acts are Ceschi and local hip-hop star 607, kicking off the music at 9 p.m. Cover is $10 for the 21-and-up show.
