“1.1.11.”
9 p.m., Mediums Art Lounge. $10

After this New Year’s Eve, you’re going to be tired, maybe still hung over and probably ready to stock up on as many extra hours of rest as possible before tackling another calendar year. That’s just the nature of New Year’s Day. But the lineup for “1.1.11” should be enough to make those with an ear for local hip-hop perk right back up. Local rapper/activist/promoter Osyrus Bolly hosts “1.1.11,” a hip-hop showcase night featuring some of the best Arkansas has to offer with sets from the Tillman brothers of EarFear, fresh off of releasing the cumbersomely-titled but banging “G33KS GON3 W!LD,” their third album in six months; Goines, who just released “It’s Gotta Be Black,” the newest in a long string of Suga City-affilliated mixtapes that live in my car stereo; Epiphany, the hyper-literate emcee with a dial that’s seemingly stuck on “grind”; the baritone swagger of Southwest Boaz; reggae-tinged rap from Bully Gang; heavy club bangers from the masked men of Da Saw Squad; and rock fusion from local mainstays Velvet Kente.
