As F. Stokes took the stage at Friday’s sold-out show at the High Noon he made sure that crowd knew “hip-hop is alive and well in Madison.” I don’t think the crowd needed much convincing. Before the start time of 10pm all of the tickets had been bought up, and people had to be turned away in droves. (Pssst…buy your tickets in advance!)

We promised an unforgettable holiday music performance from Bela Fleck, and his Flecktones, and boy, did they deliver! You don’t have to take our word for it though. Just listen to what Madison.com’s Rob Thomas had to say:
“Fleck is no stranger to playing in Madison, but Sunday’s show was truly special. The Flecktones’ approach to Christmas music not only showcased the incredible creativity and ability of every member of the band, it let you appreciate songs you’ve heard a billion times as music again, instead of just big-box store background noise.”

When Brother Ali brought his Fresh Air Tour to the Barrymore Theatre last month, Madison was treated to a performance by one of the most impressive new stars of the rap world. His latest release, Us, has been widely praised in the music press and has landed on several “Best of 2009″ lists. We were thrilled to bring this Madison-born artist back to town, and from the sounds of this insightful video interview, Ali was pretty thrilled to be here too! Check out what he had to say, and see if you can spot yourself in the crowd shots.
Need more Brother Ali? He’ll take the stage alongside The Roots as the special guest performer on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight. (NBC, 11:35 pm)
