Jurassic 5

When: Mon., July 21 and Tue., July 22 2014

With their timeless mix of Sugarhill Gang camaraderie and De La Soul sophistication, Jurassic 5 have managed to beat some formidable odds. Like Oakland's Hieroglyphics, the L.A. crew dates back to the early '90s, a time when underground hip-hop was facing an industry onslaught of yacht-hop and gangsta-rap. And while J5 members like Cut Chemist and Chali 2na may not have the name recognition of Hiero's Del the Funkee Homosapien and Casual, their collective talents are undeniable as ever. Catch them tonight and tomorrow at the Ogden Theatre (935 E. Colfax Ave., Denver; 16-plus; ogdentheatre.net) for $40/adv., $45/door. Doors open at 7, with Dilated Peoples, Beat Junkies and MC Supernatural supporting. — Bill Forman
