“Maxx is back!” That's how the young MC Max Farrell introduced himself to the local rap scene a couple years back. It rhymed. But now it's fitting. The 19-year-old, who rose in the local rap ranks after a series of much-ballyhooed live shows this summer, returns to the stage for his first full set after a semester in college. In the waning days of his holiday break from Grinnell College in Iowa, Farrell's debuting a new live hip-hop band, Apples & Spades. He won't be the only rapper with a band. Osyrus
opens with his band, Blacc Zephyr
, and Little Rock's resident rap superstar 607
also puts in some stage time. He'll be performing songs from his just-released, much talked about 31st album, “Mirrors of Time.” DJ g-force
spins all night long, too. Last time Maxx hosted a concert, some 300 people came out, so get ready for Vino's to be cozy.
