Frequency B-Day Bash: DJ Abilities, Hudson Falcons, The Dead Deads, Redshift Headlights

  • Frequency 121 West Main Street Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

DJ Abilities is a consummate turntablist, beatmaker, and producer who left a slanted and emotionally raw mark on hip-hop in his Twin Cities-based duo with MC Eyedea, who died tragically in 2010. Currently based in Milwaukee, Abilities has remained active as a solo artist, and has been touring pretty heavily lately, sharing bills with artists including Providence rapper B. Dolan and noise-rap crew Dälek. You can expect Abilities' live set to evince a lot of old-school mastery and draw on a wide sampling of hip-hop over the decades, but filtered through his own bold and sometimes warped lens. He plays here to headline night two of The Frequency's 9th anniversary celebration (details on night one here). —Scott Gordon
