Atop this teetering bill of Wisconsin hip-hop artists is a chance to catch one of Madison's most perplexing and seasonally appropriate acts, the indelible Yung Gravy. The MC uses his molasses-consistency, meticulously nonchalant flow to make his bizarre and prurient imagery stick in the listener's mind, possibly damaging whatever lobe deals with one's perceptions of Thanksgiving food and other wholesome middle-American dishes. Lines like "Twelve thotties cooking for me, that's a baker's a dozen / Trying to show me ass putting cookies in the oven" basically sum up a persona that's been consistent across all his tracks so far. At times a flexer and others a finesser, Gravy brands himself as a youthful Hugh Hefner-esque figure in constant search of culinary and/or sexual encounters with older women. How all of this will translate live, your correspondent truly could not hazard a guess. Regardless, though, with his relatively massive online following, it may not be long before the Gravy Train leaves the station. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
