Popular local party-starting outfit Showtime, which consists of longtime Classic City hip hop fixture Elite tha Showstoppa backed by members of various local funk and rock groups, will celebrate the release of its first proper full-length album on Saturday with a concert at its unofficial home base of Nowhere Bar. The 13-track Light the Fiya, CDs of which will be available for purchase at the show, features an invigorating blend of old-school hip hop, psychedelic funk, fuzzed-out garage-rock and New Orleans soul. Blacknerdninja and LG, two of the most vital hip hop artists currently on the Athens scene, will open the gig with their must-see duo performance.
