This information's neither braggadocio nor secret
Hey, do you remember when MySpace used to be cool? No, me neither, but they're finally doing something noteworthy since those eighty-nine girls in bikinis kept trying to be my friend. There's a free "secret" show tonight with Aesop Rock at Southpaw and, having seen him four times, I can almost certainly guarantee that he'll be making weird, bugged-out facial expressions throughout his set. I can also promise that Rob Sonic will not be good, even though every time I see him open I hope extra hard that he's magically gotten better. But it should still be a pretty fun time, if especially for the hilarity of seeing a Long Islander rocking a Park Slope crowd.
Aesop Rock, Southpaw, 125 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, 8 p.m., free. ("the line forms no earlier than 7pm. the first 350 persons on line will be allowed entry.")
