Local hip-hop artist Chachillie (aka Chach, aka Charles Stewart) gave us a taste of his talent on last year's Secret B-Sides release (Chach raps on "On to You"). This year is Chachillie's year. He's already released several stylish, artistic videos and his full-length album, Goosebumps on Pangaea, is set to drop "moments before midnight" on the Ides of March (that's Thursday, March 15). The dauntless 19-track collection juxtaposes thoughtful verse, r&b hooks, layered synthesizer and metallic beats. Goosebumps covers topics from environmental decay and astral projection to karma and the politicized fate of the American poor — all set to plush, danceable grooves. Need a preview? You can sample tracks at http://soundcloud.com/chachillie, or read the full album review at mountainx.com. The CD release show (with guest DJs) starts at 10 p.m. at Club Metropolis. Cover is $5. http://club-metropolis.com.
