The ContraVerse brings left-leaning hip-hop to East ATL

Posted By on Wed, Jan 23, 2013 at 12:36 PM

Tonight's show at 529 features performances by two local acts that have left an indelible mark on Atlanta's experimental hip-hop scene. Emcees Obeah and Kontent, aka the ContraVerse, play in support of their latest release, Inoculate. It's an album that shows signs of veering away from the duo's sample-heavy earlier offerings, and moving toward a more polished sound that pushes their rhymes from being simply cerebral to truly thoughtful. Calling themselves an 'experimental non-profit hip-hop collective,' WAKE will presumably perform some of their tenderly produced tracks (perhaps one that features a collaboration with the ContraVerse).

Savannah's Hangman and Nashville's Last of the Horsemen also perform.

In the meantime, give a listen to The ContraVerse's "Expect Results" (feat. Gift of Gab).

$5. 9 p.m. 529. 529 Flat Shoals Avenue. 404-228-6769.
