Ice Rod


Leftbank (map) North
Fri., Sept. 5, 11 p.m. 2008


For Ice Rod, it’s all about sex and hip-hop. This white rapper out of Minneapolis will lay down beat-driven raunch on just about any subject. With lyrics like “Smear your crotch on the Xerox/HP fax machine scanning laser jet,” he can even make using office supplies sound dirty. But aside from riding the ironic-white-rapper-sex-machine shtick, Ice Rod (AKA Michael Gaughan) is also a legitimate artist, having graduated in 2002 from Minneapolis College of Art and Design. You can sense that art school education in his twisted flow and his set at the Works will likely be a very good time. But you may want to go home and take a shower afterwards—especially if he sings that song about golden showers.
