Alternative Hip Hop group Oxymorrons are playing Rough Trade 03.30

With Southern hip-hop artists like 21 Savage and Travis Scott reigning supreme across mainstream media, it is refreshing to see groups like Queens' Oxymorrons take a different and bold approach to the genre. Oxymorrons soaks their bass-heavy hip-hop songs in elements of alternative rock, producing catchy hooks that complement their flowing verses, hence crystallizing the meaning of alternative hip-hop. The group is a perfect blend of everything that makes NYC a red-brick melting pot of genres: hard-charging licks, contagious beats, and rapid vocal deliveries form part of their performance. They are coming to Rough Trade on March 30. - Rene Cobar


Shinobi Ninja, Wordspit, Xombie & more at Paper Box 9.28

On Friday(9.28), Bushwick's Meadow Street spot Paper Box will be lending its stage to a showcase of six local distillers of rock/hip hop blends, with as headliners colourburst party-makers Shinobi Ninja . Just like Wordspit, also on the bill, they've been in the studio for a while - that is to say... new music to be expected here. The evening, hosted by comedy/hip hop act We Stole The Show, will also be the opportunity to cacth Xombie, self-defined "hood metal" five-piece, just back from the first stretch of their 'Apocalyopse' tour, who'll be back on the roads from the following week. OXYMORRONS (whose collaboration with Wynter Gordon was released last week) & Small Axe will be completing the line-up; loads to celebrate, and apparently, free beer from 8-9!
