MUST HEAR

For local hip hop fans, there is currently no venue delivering the goods like Porter’s Pub, located on the UCSD campus. With a roster full of both up and coming acts as well as established names, the relatively intimate venue is one of the few local nightspots regularly promoting the genre, with top shows on deck, like the Dec. 7 appearance by New Orleans-based Curren$y. Though first signed in 2002 as a member of the 505 Boyz, it’s only been in the last three years that Curren$y has started to reach full potential, with an impressive nine albums, three EPs and two collaborations to his credit in the last 36 months alone. An exciting and manic live performer, Curren$y is among the best hip hop artists currently on the tour circuit and Porter’s Pub is to be commended for its eclectic booking policy, bringing performers to town who might otherwise skip the area on their tours.
