Yes, ACL and SXSW host acceptable live music weather, but there's nothing better than seeing your favorite music in crisp, cool weather. No need to worry about sweaty bodies, sunburns, or that drunk person beside you passing out via dehydration.
That being said, let me tell you what show I'm most excited to catch this winter: Aesop Rock. After one winter-weather cancellation, Aesop will be gracing us with his presence Saturday Jan. 23rd at The Mohawk.
Incase T-pain and Chris Brown have you forgetting what real talented rapping is, Aesop Rock will whip your tastes back into shape. The 33 year old Long Island, New York native made it big at the start of the Underground wave of rap in the early nineties and in 2008 was deemed one of the most influential artists of the decade by betterpropaganda. No telling wether it's his clever lyrics or well-developed beats that has given him such praise, but the rapper sure can rhyme.
For a taste of Aesop Rock's skills:
Tickets are $20/$22 at the door. Don't miss this one of a kind artist at one of Austin's favorite venues.
