Honky D & the Short Raps Project set: M2 & the People, Tribe of Levi, Comfort Creature (Humboldt), 9pm/$10
Little Deany Haakenseany is Honky D, and when he's not hootin' and hollerin' with Be Brave Bold Robot he likes to rap! Here he is all naked and spittin'. Honky D describes The Short Raps Project as "a bunch of one minute raps (all winners in any "one minute song contest" perhaps), done by me and other people who don't usually rap, and a few who do... showing that anybody can rap... rap is just lyrical poetry put to some sort of beat, or a song, or a silence... rap is what you make it..." The $10 cover also gets you a copy of the Short Raps Project album. Enjoy some great conscious hip hop from Tribe of Levi, M2, and Comfort Creature (Humboldt).
