Without music, concerts wouldn't exist and funk would just be the smell emanating from an old sock filled with corn. Lend an ear to this GrouponLive deal to see Mac Miller's The Macadelic Tour with The Cool Kids and The Come Up at the Wright State University Nutter Center in Fairborn on Saturday, April 14, at 7 p.m. For $20, you get one ticket for reserved arena seating (up to a $40.10 value, including all Ticketmaster fees).
Just a couple of years out of high school, emcee Mac Miller landed a spot in XXL's 2011 Freshman Class with his easy flow that stretches back beyond tawdry tales of girls and partying to his own not-so-distant childhood. His recent bestselling album, Blue Slide Park —named after a playground near his Pittsburgh home famed for its self-aggrandizing slide—showcases Miller's strong melodic sense in the form of arrangements for piano, drums, guitar, and bass, all of which he commanded by the time he reached first grade. In concert, Miller draws upon an already deep catalog stocked with hits such as "Smile Back," "Donald Trump," and "Nikes on My Feet." Special guest stars Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish, better known by their birth name, The Cool Kids, punctuate hip-hop interludes with their laid-back, Midwestern drawls, and North Carolina's The Come Up flips bombastic rhymes over thumping bass.
