Pete Rock & Slum Village with Flying Spiders, Q Dot, IMperfect Cody, Soundcast

When: Sun., April 5, 8 p.m. 2015

Sunday night, Pete Rock takes to the Red Room Lounge stage along with golden-era Detroit trio (two of the original members are now deceased) Slum Village, adding a bit of vintage hip-hop flavor to your Easter Sunday. While neither act scored huge hits in their early-’90s heydays, they’re credited with inspiring major players in the rap scene and still hold sway today. Rock, known for his jazzy, soulful beats and remixes, even won a Grammy for his contribution to Kanye West’s 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. His long-awaited follow-up instrumental album PeteStrumentals 2 is slated for a June release.
