This is a past event.

Luck-One, Cloudy October, Corduroy the Wonderboy, The Resistance, Stewart Villain 

When: Thu., July 5, 7 p.m. 2012
The Resistance is a hiphop trio that was born from a track of the same name on North Portland emcee Mic Capes' upcoming release Rise and Grind. The song, which features local rappers Rasheed Jamal and Glenn Waco, was leaked to the internet last February and created enough buzz to warrant an ongoing collaboration. Also on the bill for this First Thursday gallery show, Cloudy October is a wildly inventive lyricist who pushes the boundaries of what it means to be a hiphop artist via his off-kilter flow, surreal subject matter, and adventurous production. And Luck-One is an absolute beast; point blank, I honestly haven't witnessed anyone who can rock a crowd harder than he can. While all three acts vary stylistically, I would recommend each and every one of them to anyone looking for an entry into high-quality Portland hiphop. All told, it's one of the strongest lineups I've seen in a while. RYAN FEIGH
