Live Videos: Atmosphere – The Orpheum – 9/8/2010

Everyday can’t be the best day.  Do what you can right now, don’t hesitate.

These were words to live by if you were an Atmosphere fan in Madison on Wednesday night.  Slug and company kicked off the first show of our massive fall line-up with a bang, never letting the energy of the sold-out crowd drop below epic proportions.  If you were like us, you were probably left dazed, confused, and wondering at the end of the night if this possibly was the best day?

Relive the chaos that Atmosphere brought to The Orpheum through these live videos, and be sure to leave us a comment on your experiences of the night!

Artists You Should Know (ticket giveaway): Brother Ali

Brother Ali

“If rap didn’t exist, he’d be the greatest high school guidance counselor in Minneapolis. But as a talent in a scene that holds decades’ worth of some of the most sensitive identity politics of any popular culture movement in the last 50 years, Brother Ali has had to put that populism to good use.” —Pitchfork

We’re extremely excited to bring Brother Ali to town headlining the Fresh Air Tour next Thursday (Nov. 19th).  The mp3s we’ve offered here on the blog have been downloaded in a furious frenzy (get em here, and here), leading us to believe you’re just as amped to see this righteous, socially outspoken hip hop artist as we are.  Read on to find out more about Brother Ali and enter to win a pair of tickets to his show.
