Smart Bets: Sk, the Novelist & Friends

When the tightknit Asheville hip-hop scene produces a new work, the celebration of the fresh arrival tends to attract a generous dose of allies from within the city. That level of unity proves doubly true on Thursday, March 14, at The Mothlight, an evening primarily geared to fete the release of Sk, the Novelist’s latest full-length album, Baggage. Prior to the lyricist performing his recent collection, fellow local Musashi Xero will share tracks off his forthcoming collaborative EP with Raleigh-based producer Oak City Slums. The convergence of recorded material has attracted fellow local MCs Mike L!VE, Spaceman Jones, Herb da Wizard and P.T.P., all of whom will take to the stage backed by tracks spun by DJ Kutzu, starting at 9 p.m. $10 advance/$12 day of show.
