Show Alert: D-Sisive w/ My Son the Hurricane, Tues. Apr. 26 @ Phog Lounge

One of the things we love about CBC Radio 3 is the wide variety of genres they play. It introduces us to music we might not ordinarily listen to, including hip hop and rap. Totally turned off by most of the hip hop and rap on U.S. commercial radio, it was a pleasant surprise to discover artists like Buck 65, Shad, K'Naan and D-Sisive.

That's why we'll (finally) be attending our first hip hop show on Tues., Apr. 26 at Windsor's Phog Lounge. And not just any hip hop show. Not only is Juno- and Polaris-nominated rapper D-Sisive (Toronto) headlining (you can download his latest album, Jonestown 2: Jimmy Go Bye Bye  for free), he's touring with 14-piece (yes, you read that right) "brasshop" group My Son the Hurricane from Hamilton.

Opening: the Bad Mothers
