Stic.man and M-1 (aka hip-hop duo Dead Prez) have been using the stage for a decade and a half to deal with subjects of social justice and pan-African ideology. Their long-awaited album, Information Age, is due out on Oct. 16 (while that's been in the works, stic.man has also been growing his RBG Fit Club, a community of athletes from beginners to elite martial artists). Dead Prez headlines The Elevate: Really DOPE Music Festival at The Grey Eagle on Saturday, Oct. 6. "Non-compromising vegan proponent" StaHHr also takes the stage. Local R&B group The Secret B-Sides opens, with guests Chachillie and Jonathan Santos. 9 p.m., $20 in advance or $22 day of show. http://www.thegreyeagle.com.
