Halloween kicks off extra early this week with a horror-themed (at least in name) hip hop showcase at the Caledonia. The Thursday event will feature no fewer than 10 regional rap artists and/or budding collectives, including the scene-galvanizing Space Dungeon crew, as well as Athens O.G. Dictator, Macon’s Floco Torres and Mississippi’s Young Nolia. Two new supergroups will be represented at the show: NBlock, featuring Yung Cuz, Tru Thought and 3ft, and We’re Weird, comprised of Blacknerdninja, Squalle, LG and Profound. Squalle just released one of the year’s most impressive local albums in the powerful, politically minded Black Picassoul.
