Concert preview: Flosstradamus

Chris DeVille, Columbus Alive

Why you should go: If you have a problem with bassy Southern gangster rap being appropriated and crossbred with aggro dubstep by primarily white DJs for primarily white audiences, you probably also have a problem with Chicago producers J2K and Autobot calling themselves the Hoodie Boyz on this post-Zimmerman-verdict summer club tour. Let's choose to look at it as a gesture of solidarity - with Trayvon Martin or with each other - and move on.

Sugar Bar 2
