Huntsville, AL's spaced out rap duo G-SIDE will return to Proud Larry's in Oxford, MS on Thursday 2/3/11. Their transcendent sophomore record THE ONE... COHESIVE is out now. Here's what THE FADER had to say about the album:
"It's essentially the musical equivalent of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Beautiful moments of abstraction that sound like they're beamed from space-- ultra private but with an undeniable connection to the human world."
Oxford's DEAD GAZE will open the show, and FLIGHT will DJ between sets. Show starts at 9pm. Tickets are $10.

Canadian apocalyptic pop ensemble GOBBLE GOBBLE brought their Mobile Rave Infinitour to Oxford, MS in August of 2010, resulting in the most insane house party we've ever seen by a long shot. They'll be returning 3/21/11 to bless our new space CATS PURRING DUDE RANCH with their interactive and mind-bending performance hijinks.
To celebrate, Gobble Gobble's fearless leader CECIL FRENA curated a warped and wonderful YouTube playlist, which features pregnant robots, glow sticks in toilets, and a Creed cover. Consider this the first in a series of Cats Purring Video Playlists curated by our friends and family.
