RJD2 On The 1s and 2s

RJD2 is performing in Carrboro tomorrow night and Charlotte Monday night in support of his 4th full length album, The Colossus, which is set for a January 19 release. The Constellations from Atlanta are supporting him and as Jimmy described them in a GChat conversation I found from July, they are “Gorillaz meets Gnarls…very funky”. You may have also heard them on EO’s summer mix; they are worth checking out.

My history with RJD2 has everything to do with Deadringer (2002) which made for a perfect soundtrack for playing FIFA all day at the house. I also saw him open for The Disco Biscuits at The Congress Theatre in Chi-citay last January and he really got the crowd going, but I am looking forward to seeing him in a smaller venue. Combine tomorrow night’s show with NFL Wildcard games starting at 1 and the Tar Heels’ ACC opener at 7:45 and you got yourself a nice little Sunday planned out. Fuck Mondays.
