- Chitown's Common plays tonight at 9:30 Club
- Former lead MC of Jurassic 5 (J5), Chali 2 Na joins salsa funk band Ozotmatli on stage at 9:30 Club. Chali 2 Na was actually the founder of Ozotmatli and while he is not an official member of the band he has continued to colloborate with them. After superb albums in Jurassic 5 LP and Quality Control and a decent one in Power in Numbers, J5 disappointed with Feedback. Regardless, Chali 2 Na's distinguished deep voiced rapid fire flow is more than enough to get your dancing feet moving. His stage name was taken from the Starkist Tuna's cartoon deep voiced mascot Charlie the Tuna. Back at the 2002 Smokin Grooves show at Nissan Pavillion I had the opportunity to talk to Chali 2 Na who was chilling among the crowd while the Roots on stage. The conversation ended abruptly with him hollering at a random woman. The footage below will give peeps an idea of what to expect tomorrow night.
