Looking for something to do this weekend? We've got you covered!


Ill Poetic album release at Notes

Conceived, written and recorded over the course of a decade, An Idiot’s Guide serves as more than a travelogue marking these various external signposts. Rather, much of the album’s back half traces a shift within the rapper, who, at age 35, now approaches music with a different purpose than he did in his mid-20s. Celebrate the album’s release with this show at Notes.

What will record covers look like in 20 years? Streetlight Guild’s Scott Woods asked a bunch of artists to render their thoughts on the subject, with writers providing liner notes and other attendant materials. The result is both playful and provocative, as Woods ponders, “A digital piece might never be anywhere besides a phone. An album cover could end up on a wall; you have to engage it. If artists were forced to consider how it would be processed intellectually, we might be getting different art.”
