“Combines all of the naughty child-like wonder of Dawson's work with Aesop Rock's unmistakable flow.… You get two divergent styles and stylists coming together in a way recalling the experimental bravery of Mellow Gold–era Beck.”—City Pages

Underground hip-hop artist Aesop Rock teams up with anti-folk icon Kimya Dawson (ex–Moldy Peaches) for their new band, the Uncluded. The band’s name, the Uncluded, is inspired by the book Imaginationally by Michael Bernard Loggins and means "to keep the things you don't appreciate out of your life.” For a preview of their fabulously quirky music, check out their debut, Hokey Fright, scheduled for release May 7 on the Rhymesayers label. 

Sharp-tongued songster Hamell on Trial opens the show with a set of his barbed blasts delivered with a wicked sense of humor.
