Cadence Weapon

Please note: This event has already occurred.
If Drake is all you know about hip-hop from the Great White North, you owe it to yourself to check out Cadence Weapon. The Alberta emcee pushes boundaries on the mike — he’s the former poet laureate of the capital city of Edmonton — as well as in his rhythms, which range from freewheeling sax samples to woozy ’80s keyboards. He’ll be performing songs from the new “Hope in Dirt City” at DC9.
