Although a singing telegram offers antiquated charm, a rapping telegram is still the best way to break off your engagement to Tipper Gore. Enjoy the rhymes of today’s GrouponLive deal to see Kool Keith at Reggies Rock Club. For $7, you get one general-admission ticket for Sunday, January 22, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $15.33 value, including ticketing fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Famously eclectic rapper Kool Keith feeds his microphone with decades of lyrical inanity and playful innuendo as he spearheads a spread of stellar local DJs and MCs. A founding member of Ultramagnetic MCs with a list of aliases that makes census takers weep, Kool Keith has garnered fame and cult success with all of his monikers, including Dr. Octagon, Black Elvis, and Dr. Dooom. Keith channels these personas and manias as he toggles through his verbose brain in a subversive set that pushes the sonic envelope. The rest of the evening’s wordsmith stampede showcases the sharp linguistics of Kid Static and the carcinogenic enunciation of Phillip Morris, along with boisterous mouth jousting from Second City Citizens, Kid Slim, and Dezert Eez.
