I’m not sure if we are going to see this band more because we are intrigued by their music or more because saying their name just reminds us of Streetfighter, either way, we’re going to the Viper Room early to see Hadouken. We also expect to stick around to see The Binges (they headline).

After we go there, we may also head to Echoplex because the Rhymesayers crew is in town – specifically Eyedea & Abilities. They are always fun, creative and Eyedea is certainly lyrically amusing. He hasn’t toured in a minute, so fans should be out the woodwork for this one…
