Gil Scott-Heron and the Amnesia Express

When: Fri., Oct. 9, 8 p.m. 2009

XL Recordings president Richard Russell has managed to assemble a pretty amazing roster of artists, including M.I.A., the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, Dizzee Rascal and Thom Yorke. But based on recent comments, the musician he's most excited about is his latest signing, Gil Scott-Heron (see "Harlem renaissance," April 30, 2009 here). Legendary for deeply felt anthems like "Winter in America" and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," the Harlem-based genius recently recorded "New York is Killing Me," the final track for his forthcoming XL debut, and it's rumored to be amazing. You can bring yourself up to speed tonight when Scott-Heron's Amnesia Express makes a rare stop at Colorado College's Armstrong Hall (14 E. Cache la Poudre St., coloradocollege.edu). Tickets are $20 ($15 for students) and showtime is 8. — Bill Forman

Price: $15-$20
