Sleep, Too Tone Taurus, Made Up Minds, Chuck City

When: Mon., Aug. 3, 8 p.m. 2009

I'd say Sleep sounds pretty much like Aesop Rock, whose music I like a lot, but some b-boy who knows way more about hip-hop than me is probably going to tell me I'm an idiot. I'll live. At least I can say with confidence that Sleep (real name Chris Tafoya) throws down his rhymes with a super-fast delivery that's impressive regardless. And the fact that legendary rapper Del the Funky Homosapien appears on his latest album, Hesitation Wounds, says a lot. Having grown up in Farmington, N.M., Sleep now calls Portland, Ore., home and is a representing member of Oldominion, a 20-emcee, producer and artist collaborative. But all you really need to know is that at 8 tonight, he'll be at the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., blacksheeprocks.com) playing an all-ages show with several hip-hop openers, all for $8. — Matthew Schniper
