Astronautalis Live in Chicago 9/5/2014 (& EP Stream)

MPLS-based Alternative Hip-Hop / Indie artist Astronautalis takes the stage tonight at Lincoln Hall. Having started in music over 15 years ago as a battle rapper, Astronautalis’ roots are planted firmly in Hip-Hop. However, the sounds and styles on his albums are an animal not so easily caged, and his latest release, This Is Our Science is no exception to that tradition of wild genre bending. While there are flash references to scientists from the Age of Enlightenment and old dead French mountaineers, these ghosts serve merely as parallels, rest stops in the story of the last 7 years of Bothwell’s romance with the road.
