Big Boi and Killer Mike, DJ Shadow, Juicy J to Perform at Georgia Theatre This Spring

Today the Georgia Theatre announced a slate of upcoming spring shows, and there are some good ones: DJ Shadow will perform later this month (Mar. 27; enterprising local producer Murk Daddy Flex will open) and underrated Three 6 Mafia mastermind/weirdly normal person Juicy J will grace the stage on May 1. (Also: the godly Yo La Tengo on Apr. 29., a bit of news that flew weirdly under the radar.)

But perhaps the most exciting part of the announcement was that two of Atlanta’s finest, Big Boi and Killer Mike, will co-headline a show on Thursday, Apr. 18. Both rappers are no strangers to Athens, having performed here separately in the past year. But the two of them together on one bill? Forget it. Show of the year.
