Domestica: The Final Theater in the Infesticons Saga
March 9th and 10th (Thurs and Fri, 8pm)
Rapper, musician, and hip-hop conceptualist, Mike Ladd pushes the boundaries of experimental hip-hop with his political and sonic explorations, which he describes as ?post-futurist soul music?. Accompanied by a crew of MCs and musicians, Ladd performs songs from his acclaimed Since Infesticons/Majesticons trilogy of albums. This series is based on Ladd?s invented sci-fi narrative that chronicles a fictitious rap battle over hip-hop?s future fought between two rival factions, represented alternatively as the assimilated ?commercial mainstream? and the rebellious ?underground contingent?. The evening also includes the New York-debut of new tracks from the final trilogy installment, Domesticons.
