Here it is, the grand finale of this year’s Sonik Frootz musical residency at Antone’s tonight, Friday June 30, and it’s a big one. Not only do you have Riders Against the Storm guaranteeing an action-packed night, but this evening’s spectacular event includes special guest Topaz Jones, New Jersey-born rap artist and creator of the critically-lauded album and accompanying film, Don’t Go Tellin’ Your Momma, a hip-hop chronicle of Jones’ formative years brilliantly utilizing the Black ABCs in a powerful and gripping narrative.

Tonight’s show also features performances by funk/rock/jazz/soul outfit Sketch.Band, a return performance by rockers The Past Lives, and reggae/R&B/soul artist Lady Shacklin. Doors at 7 p.m., and proceeds benefit the DAWA-powered Black Live Music Fund. ROLL UP.
