Preview: The Knux at Skully’s

From the November 24, 2011 edition

It’s been a long time since most people have thought about Young MC and Tone Loc. It’s probably been even longer since the memory of Puff Daddy’s “All About the Benjamins (Rock Remix)” haunted any poor soul. But The Knux’s new “Eraser” mercilessly plunges a blade into those scars.

New Orleans-raised brothers Kentrell “Krispy” Lindsey and Alvin “Joey” Lindsey lead a hip-hop band with a Roots-like reputation for guaranteed entertainment. And while their live show rarely stops to catch a breath, I often found myself wishing it would when I caught them at Bonnaroo 2009.

Jordy Towers and Vanity Theft open next Wednesday’s show.
