I'm not sure how this nearly slipped beneath our usually well-tuned show radar, but consider us schooled. If you're looking for something that goes a little harder than Washed Out's kaleidoscopic chill-wave mood music tonight, one-time Clipse member and Kanye West crony Pusha T is headlining Anthem for what could be the best hip-hop club show of the year.
If you haven't been keeping up with Push since Clipse parted ways in 2009, he's become the standout star of Kanye's GOOD Music label, notably reinvigorating Chief Keef's “Don't Like”, featuring on "Mercy" on last year's Cruel Summer compilation and, this year, releasing his critically acclaimed solo debut, My Name Is My Name. If you're down for minimalist, sinister-sounding trap music with a brain, this is where you want to be.
King Push will be joined by Openmic, Purpl Monk, Ducko McFli, Thatguysoda and DJ Rate on the ones and twos. It's a pricey one — $30 for general admission and $40 for VIP — but consider this: Pusha T isn't going to be playing clubs for very long if he keeps on the same trajectory that he's been on. Mark it.
