Murs isn't Afraid to Tackle Boise 

Monday, Mar. 11 at Neurolux

Murs has been making smart underground hip-hop for years--first with California indie rap troupe Living Legends and more recently as a solo artist.

Murs' early material skewed toward slow-rolling funk and soul beats, peppered with brass and thumping bass lines, but 2011's Love and Rockets Vol. 1 mixed in new genres, borrowing droning guitars and heaps of digital reverb. Consistent through both styles is a strong voice unafraid to tackle social and political issues.

Savvy rhymes, fresh beats and a cool, composed flow make Murs a standout among his contemporaries, who include El-P and J Dilla. Murs returns to Boise Friday, March 11, at the tail end of the multi-city Road to Paid Dues Tour.

    Alive After Five: Afrosonics, Aug. 31

    To call their sound “world music” is literally accurate—led by Dayo “Ariwo” Ayodele, of Nigeria, band members hail from as far as Congo Brazzaville and Surinam, and as near as California and Boise—but the label doesn’t quite do them justice.
