is rapidly establishing itself as Colorado Springs’ "little venue that could." Less than six months after opening, the alternative music space has been bringing in several all-ages shows a week, most of them featuring national touring artists, while showcasing a broader range of music than many of us expected.
Now comes the good news that Gift of Gab
, emcee for the hip-hop duo Blackalicious
, will be headlining the venue this Thursday night.
It’s a pretty big score for Flux Capacitor, and for Colorado Springs in general. The Bay Area rapper is widely regarded as one of the best in underground hip-hop, with Pitchfork
drooling over his “astonishing verbal dexterity and enunciation.”
And just in case you think this booking is a fluke, you should also know that Rhymesayers
is slated to play Flux Capacitor on June 19.
