Preview: Danny Brown at the Phoenix 11/4

The new album from Danny Brown is so out there, that the irreverent Detroit MC decided to release it on Warp Records.  Where his previous releases 'XXX' and 'Old' came from Fool's Gold Records, after one listen to the new project this move will make perfect sense.  One thing that hasn't changed is the intensity of Danny Brown's live show.  He's bringing the 'Atrocity Exhibition' tour, along with special guests Maxo Kream and ZelooperZ to the Phoenix, one of Toronto's legendary venues...

Tickets are still available, but they sure won't last.  Get yours here and get your copy of 'Atrocity Exhibition' here!
