How the Grouch Stole Christmas Tour 

Dec. 8, Knitting Factory

Sometimes you hear hip-hop so transgressive and from such a diverse collective that it almost needs its own name.

On Wednesday, Dec. 8, the Knitting Factory will host some of the coolest hip-hop happening right now: the How the Grouch Stole Christmas Tour. Gravelly voiced MC The Grouch (Living Legends) with drum-and-bass master DJ Fresh (check out the track "Hypercaine"), the powerful pale Brother Ali and DJ Snuggles, intellectual Eligh (Living Legends) and the Spanish/English dancehall-reggae rappers Los Rakas. Each act, in its own right, is a powerful force in the genre.

The Grouch's two decades of performing have earned him a spot as one of the forefathers of hip-hop. Combine his prowess with the talent and energetic delivery of his tour mates and the result is a show so amazing, it should be called volcanic-supernova-over-the-top-hop.
