Have a hip-hop Halloween at Andy’s

Sick beats and goofy costumes look to be the top priorities at tonight’s Halloween show at Andy’s Bar.

Denton’s AV the Great will man the microphone for an evening where the taps will flow generously and cover is suspended.

The lineup merges Dallas and Denton talent. Playdough, a Dallas rapper who spits fast and furious, makes the short trek to Denton with Brain Gang Blue, a Dallas artist mostly known for his instrumental rap music. Emeka Ibe also drifts northward to play the Halloween show.

The bill is also stacked with Denton acts — S. Good, who tips his straight-billed ball cap to the likes of Beck (and maybe throws down a gauntlet to the carbon copies of Eminem) and headliners Fab Deuce. The busiest DJ in Denton, Yeahdef, will be on the motherboard.

The show promises to be heavy on the party anthems, but walk in knowing that Playdough can improvise verses with little more than audience names as inspiration.
