You guys can have your George Thorogood, your Leonard Cohen, your Bob Dylan and your Air Supply. Just last weekend I was talking with a friend (over a steak that was as thin as it was tasty) about how awesome it would be if Nas came to town. Lo and behold, this fucking wonderful announcement came unto me this day: Underdog presents Nas, May 16 at the Cunard Centre. Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 5 at the Ticket Atlantic Box Office, online at, by phone 451-1221, and at all Atlantic Superstore Ticket Atlantic outlets. It’s a general admission event, standing room only. It’s also wet/dry, so even the shorties can come. Guess who else is playing? Classified, the HalfLife crew, Ghettosocks and Heavy Spittaz. This seriously made my day infinity times over. I hope Kelis comes too!
