MONDAY 11/19


9 p.m., Revolution. $5.

In the last several years, few locals have done more for Arkansas hip-hop than a 44-year-old white woman named Debbi Tedder. Over the last decade or so, Tedder has built up a veritable DJ empire in Central Arkansas through her T's Tunes collective. Just about every night of the week, you can find DJ Debbi T or one of her cohorts working the decks in a local nightspot. As she's developed this presence, Tedder has made a point to support the local rap scene. Her regular showcase, “Tha Rock Underground Show,” which floats, weekly, among local venues, has become the place to go to see an assortment of rising and established local talent. On Monday, local collective Grim Muzik will be the draw. Sixteen rappers strong, the camp crowds the stage, but never the mic, always managing to make their menace sound cool. Rising local diva Gina Gee might have the strongest, most compelling voice in town. Lately, she's been performing with Epiphany and One Night Stand, while working on her solo material. She rounds out the line-up with Hot Springs R&B crooner Lil Robb and rapper Loko, from Fayetteville.
