​KEViN1100 & SKiTCHA LABELMATES SHOW FEATURED

KEViN1100 & SKiTCHA LABELMATES SHOW FEATURED

Friday 27

Kevin1100 & Friends — Birthday boy Kevin1100 celebrates another year ’round the sun today, and because it’s his birthday, he’ll rap if he wants to. There’s a genial affability to Mr. 1100’s music — his beats are sprightly and his rhymes light-headed, warranting comparisons to Lupe Fiasco circa “Kick Push.” Tonight, he gets by with a little help from some of his friends from the broader reaches of the local hip-hop scene: DJ Lonzo, Reign 9000, Oscar Lee, $tu $imon, and Bennie Sav. — Patrick Wall | The Soda Live (Tapp’s Arts Center): 8 p.m., $10 ($7 advance); 803-988-0013, tappsartscenter.com
