Sage Francis

With Sole and Solilloquists of Sound. 8 p.m. Monday, October 10, $14 (all ages). Beachland Ballroom, 15711 Waterloo Rd., 216-383-1124.


Shows like this don't happen every week. Sage Francis reunites with the equally sage Sole, his former labelmate at indie-rap citadel Anticon. The two giants are at the top of the alt-hip-hop game. It's like having Interpol and the Bravery on the same bill. Like Slayer and Ride the Lightning-era Metallica. Like Tori Amos and Fumbling Towards Ecstasy-era Sarah McLachlan. Like Ali and Tyson. Like chocolate and peanut butter. Ummmm, peanut butter. Anyway, expect spoken-word, rhymes, some guest appearances, and possibly some live guitar.
