Live in NYC: Rakim, Black Thought, Keith Murray, Just-Ice with DJ Sets by Dante Ross, Ge-ology, Psycho Les, DJ JS-1, Dooley O, Chairman Mao, DJ Amir, J-Zone, Jel + Thanksgiving Brown (12/19, 8pm)

I don’t have to say anything except peep the lineup. This will be the last show at the Knitting Factory before they move to Brooklyn next year. More importantly, it will be the last show for the venue’s booking agent for all these crazy Hip-Hop shows over the past two years, Peter Agoston. Looking back, the big name acts he was able bring to such an intimate spot have been very impressive. The venue has hosted shows by the likes of Nice & Smooth, Boot Camp Clik, Gza, Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip, Jeru The Damaja, Cormega, Das Efx, Brand Nubian, The Beatnuts and many others. Not to mention the Knitting Factory was where I got to see a super rare NYC performance by the one and only Schoolly D! Big ups to Peter for holding it down over there. Oh yeah, don’t sleep. buy tickets
