The controversial rapper, whose proper debut album Somethin' 'Bout Kreay is out in late September, will be here in early November. It's one of Parade of Flesh's biggest shows yet.
The Sparrow Project
Thursday, September 6, at The Kessler Theater, $8
It's been five years since Dallas musician Carter Albrecht was killed and he is still missed. So much so that, to mark the five-year anniversary of his passing, Abbie Chesney and the Carter Albrecht Music Foundation are releasing an album called The Sparrow Project. The disc features songs from many of Carter's friends and an unreleased song from himself. The show will feature performances from Salim Nourallah, Chris Holt, Dave Little, Sammy Stritmatter and John Lefler.
Sunday, September 23, at Dada, $13/$17
Albanian-American rapper Action Bronson is on his second career. His first was a chef in New York City, but he traded it in for a career in hip-hop, which seems to be going well since his debut album, Dr. Lecter, was released last year. Dada doesn't see a lot of hip-hop shows, so this should be an interesting one.
