No Bird Sing and Hives Inquiry Squad


Alhambra Theatre (map) Southeast
Tue., Jan. 7, 9 p.m. 2014 21+


No Bird Sing is a three-piece group from Minneapolis that features emcee/vocalist Joe Horton rapping and singing over soundscapes provided by a guitarist and drummer duo, who double as producers in the studio. It's telling that they've toured with Doomtree's Dessa and are signed to the label run by Sage Francis, as No Bird Sing's music attacks with a visceral wave that descends from the same unique corner of indie-rap. For tonight's show, they reached out to Portland's Hives Inquiry Squad, former Midwesterners who shared a bill with them back in the day. Emcee Lucas Dix's partner and Hives collaborator Gavin Theory sadly passed away in April of 2012, but he's working on a final Hives project rapping over some of the last beats that Gavin made. Dix will debut that material live tonight, alongside songs from his Jellyfish Brigade project. RYAN FEIGH
