The new year started of pretty awesome for music in Sioux Falls as we got to party it up at Icon lounge with one of my personal favorite rappers, Aesop Rock.
Listening to the familiar beats and hypnotic flow of Aesop Rock, I was reminded of my last year of high school; smoking cigarettes with a friend behind the gas station listening to "None Shall Pass" and "Pigs". His was some of the first rap music I actually really, legitimately enjoyed and made an effort to seek out and listen to. It was surreal and magical to be transported back to a different time, and even more cool to hear a lot of songs from his killer new album, "The Impossible Kid" and know that now I'll be associating those songs with this experience at one of my favorite local venues in my hometown.
Here's a bunch of other photos I snapped that night, enjoy 'em.
Keep Sioux Falls Rad!
