Getting front-row seats to a concert often requires fans to overpay scalpers or name their firstborn child 93.1 FM. See a show on your terms with today's GrouponLive deal: for $22, you get one ticket to see the Generation Laser Tour starring Lupe Fiasco with The Cool Kids at the NIU Convocation Center in Dekalb on Tuesday, October 4, at 7:30 p.m. (a $44.10 value, including fees). Seats will be in rows C–H in section 105, or in rows F–K in section 110. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Parking is available on site for an extra fee of $3–$5. Coming off the release of his album Lasers, Lupe Fiasco weaves dazzling verbal tapestries of socially conscious rhymes buttressed by soaring melodies and teeth-rattling beats. With such hits as "The Show Goes On," "Superstar," "Daydreamin’," and "Shining Down," Lupe Fiasco's music alternates between keenly intelligent flow and mellifluous singing, soothing eardrums scarred from hearing too many cats being bathed. Chicago-based The Cool Kids hits the stage with a funky fusion of old- and new-school hip-hop from its buzzed-about new album, When Fish Ride Bicycles. The artists will lay down tunes at the massive Northern Illinois University Convocation Center, letting music flow across the campus to entertain bored Latin classrooms and throw off beatboxing textbooks.
Though the venue offers students a $5 discount, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
