Every once in a long while, Cornerstone bags a hip-hop icon or two and 'heads around the state profit. Case in point: The Blackalicious show from 2006 is about as mythical as it gets. Now, Doodlebug, one cog in early '90s jazz rap trio Digable Planets, is slated to bring his one-man show to the Argenta bar.
Admittedly, Digable Planets were the Aerosmith to A Tribe Called Quest's Rolling Stones. And 20 years after the trio released their untouchable breakout single, "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)," Doodlebug's partner Butterfly is making some of the best new hip-hop under the moniker Shabazz Palaces. But when anyone from an act as esteemed as Digable Planets comes to town, you'd be flat-out wrong not to go show your propers and have a blast while you're at it.
Check it out: Doodlebug (as Cee Knowledge) and the CFO Live Band straight jamming.
