Born Ruffians and Cadence Weapon at Union Hall

Born Ruffians and Cadence Weapon played on the same bill at Union Hall on Saturday night and just by chance they’ve both got new records dropping on Tuesday. (I guess we’ll see if Drake comes up with the goods on those ones this week).

I’ve got Born Ruffians first record and I didn’t remember loving it when it first came out, but I really did like what I heard from them on Saturday night (I actually think they played a mix of old and new material). I’ll have to go give their debut another spin, perhaps it’s a grower.

I wasn’t able to catch much of Cadence Weapon‘s set on Saturday night, but what I did hear, I kinda liked (which is something, considering I am not much of a hip-hop fan in general).

Check out my full flickr sets from those shows over here and here.
