NYE To-Do: 607

607
9 p.m., Gusano's. $5.

After winning the Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase and releasing an album with his brother Bobby, 607 did something he'd never done before. He slowed down. The super-prolific MC — 30 albums, thousands of performances — recorded and then invited friends and family to critique his work. Rather than knock out an album in one day, as has been the norm, he stretched the process across four sessions. “I can't just be good anymore,” he told me a while back. “I've got to be great.” Fans will get their first opportunity to see if he succeeded at this New Year's Eve show, where he'll release the new album, “Mirrors of Time.” It's a synchronicity the MCs have probably been planning for years — the release of his 31st album on the 31st. As usual, Bobby, AKA Mr. Morbid, helps out on the mic and DJ Discipline mans the ones and twos. Check his MySpace page for a preview of the album's first single, an anthem for these troubled economic times called "Let's Go Dutch."
