Speaker Bump Special

By: Laurie Gallardo

Chucky Blk

It’s the Speaker Bump Social, though leave it to your AMM host to keep referring to tonight‘s line-up at Hole In the Wall as the “Speaker Bump Special.” But it is special!

  • Don’t forget to get your hands on Ben Buck’s B Sides remix compilation, put together by the ATX-based rapper/beatbox himself. From traditional to underground, Ben Buck honors the legacy of hip-hop artists before him, and is one hell of a collaborator. The comp came about when, faced with not being able to meet with other artists in person during the height of the pandemic, Buck sent out acapella tracks from his past three albums to producers across the country. Get that lightning when you see Buck tonight at the Hole.
  • Following a spectacular Freestyle Monday session at Knomad Studio, along with the release of the new video for “Heartless Monster”, Chucky Blk is ready for the Speaker Bump Special. Your AMM host is hooked on the poetry of A Scathing Critique of Current Affairs, but don’t miss out on Blk’s cover of Death Grips“Black Paint” with “a sprinkle of Henry Dumas’s KEF 12” in the recipe. Et voila!
  • Don’t get it twisted, now. In the words of alt.- hip hop outfit Twisted June, “The FUNK shall be within U.” And by the looks of it, this band is just finding its voice.

Doors at 8 p.m., and the show kicks off at 9 p.m. Get it all.

But this songwriting marks the arrival of a […]
