This was a show that was put on by Mill City Scene to celebrate the release of their first issue. Mill City Scene is a newspaper/magazine/website that covers all things concerning the local hip hop scene in Minneapolis. This was the sickest local hip hop bill I've seen in a long long time. As you'll find on the recordings many of the performers felt the same way as well. If you live in the metro area pick up a copy of MCS and if you don't you can still read all of the great articles on their website. This show included performances by; El Guante & See More Perspective, Carnage, Hyder Ali, Kristoff Krane and Big Quarters. There was not a weak set in the bunch and you'll get to hear all of them.

I chose to post the Hyder Ali set first because they're my favorite local band to come out of 2008. I haven't seem them since the Kristoff Krane CD Release in September and I was excited to get another set out. I'm putting the soundboard out there because the mic source is full of people talking about porches and stuff. I usually don't get into the spammy street team stuff but if anyone reading was up for going to the Current's site and requesting their new single "Paper Dolls" it would be greatly appreciated by me and likely the band as well. If you're interested you can do so here.
