Corey Mo + Eyenine + Sandbag + Talib Kweli + God.Damn.Chan.
CONSCIENCE COOL | Once a member of the influential hip hop duo Blackstar (with Mos Def) and, lesser known, an experimental theater student, the Brooklyn posi-rapper TALIB KWELI headlines a night of hip hop at the Port City Music Hall, anticipating the release of Prisoner of Consciousness, his sixth solo album. More than 15 years into his career, Kweli holds the rare distinction of being one of the most popular and socially with-it rappers in the country, calling out Tea Party libertarians on his last record Gutter Rainbows and speaking out against New York’s racially charged stop-and-frisk law. With Houston’s purple rapper COREY MO and locals EYENINE and SANDBAG. 9 pm, $20 at 504 Congress St., 207.899.4990.
