High End Theory

Angelino’s are stupidly spoiled with options when it comes to live music. There’s hardly a night that goes by in this town where you can’t satiate your appetite for a good live show. Low End Theory surely sits at the very zenith of the town’s hierarchy, the weekly show consistently packs The Airliner. Flying Lotus still regularly attends and this week he brought a few high profile special guests. Not a Mac Miller fan, but Earl Sweatshirt is on a serious come up.

The Afrikan Space Man


Ras G is the #1 ranked astronaut in the Afrikan Space Program. For those of you who can’t peep your favorite cosmonaut at Low End Theory on the regular, it is a must to check in with this new and free EP, download it in it’s entirety here. Also, we are lining up some time with Open Mike Eagle to discuss his movements, including his recent trip with Ras G to Uganda, sounds ridiculously intriguing.

Aye, Papi Kev

For those of you lucky enough to live in this Smog, Filth, Grime, city that we call Los Angeles, you should hit up The Airliner on Wednesday nights, They got a little night going down over there called Low End Theory, featuring some of the this nations best music talent, weekly. One such resident DJ is Daddy Kev, a quintessential jack of all trades DJ. Plunge yourself down the rabbit hole at Low End Theory and you’ll find yourself enamored with Electro, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass, and everything in between. Think of it like the music that would be played in Zion in the Matrix Trilogy, just on some future sonic Jetsons shit. It truly is a wormhole of contemporary music, a 21st century music heritage event, weekly.

For those of you that were lucky enough to have caught the Low End Theory tour in Japan at the end of last year, there’s likely plenty of envy and empathy you have for us Angelinos. For those of you who have never heard of the likes of Nosaj Thing, Gaslamp Killer, and Daddy Kev, check out the Philip Arnold Paul Japan Tour cd*.

* Philip Arnold Paul is an insane killer that escaped last year from a mental institution. He was later apprehended. I have no idea why they chose the name other than that.
