Flatbush Zombies, Bodega Bamz 

When: Fri., Oct. 25, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $15
New York's Flatbush Zombies—Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Erick Arc Elliot, the last of whom also handles most of the group's production—have a lot going for them. Their dark, drugged-up, eyes-rolled-back aesthetic and highly "rebloggable" streetwear fashion sense have made them one of the most buzzed/tweeted/Tumblr'd-about new rap groups on the internet, but their music has mostly been a mere side note to this popularity. And though their latest effort, BetterOffDEAD, is a definite improvement from their lackluster debut, D.R.U.G.S., it still sounds like a distilled, less-talented version of a Tech N9ne or a Gravediggaz-type Wu-affiliate. Unless you're a teenager or brand-new rap fan, Flatbush Zombies will likely have you reminiscing on the time when New York rappers started trends instead of chasing them. MIKE RAMOS
