The irregularly occuring, regularly entertaining hip-hop party AnimalXHouse has been bringing big-time rappers to Columbus before they hit the big-time (see: Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper), and they've even expanded to Chicago and Austin's SXSW festival this year. Now the event is returning to Columbus, this time to cap off the Alive-sponsored Long Street Stage at Red, White & Boom. The showcase runs from 8-11 p.m., interrupted briefly by, you know, fireworks.
Given the party's track record of booking up-and-coming stars, you might want to familiarize yourself with Kentucky MC Nemo Achida, who'll headline the showcase alongside Columbus favorite P. Blackk, Cleveland youngster Ezzy, Cincinnati hip-hop band The Natives and Power 107.5's DJ Giovanny. Could be as explosive as the fireworks display scheduled to erupt during the set. Check the poster below for all the info, and go here for the rest of the Boom music schedule.
