Memorial Day has passed, but Memori-ILL Day is just getting started. Instead of somber ceremonies mixed with a little light campaigning in this political season, you’ll get hours of entertainment from the Hip-Hop Mayor of St. Paul and company. We’re guessing that title is self-declared since no election was ever held. At this past year’s Soundset and out with a new album this winter, I.L.I.C.I.T. is certainly hardworking. On his track “Anybody Can Rap,” the performer brags that most of his fans are grad students, but encourages everyone to join in. So tonight, he’s extending his hand to you with plenty of guests on stage as well.
Expect appearances from Kaleem, MC Longshot, Glo Pesci, and pretty much everyone else in the Twin Cities hip-hop community. Well, not really everyone else, but it just goes to show how much this scene is growing. And we’re all for that. 7 p.m. $10. –LB
