Dana Coppafeel and Reason w/ Fresco Clean, E.S.S.B. and Lucha Libre
Tonight @ Cactus Club, 10 p.m.
Milwaukee rapper Dana Coppafeel's service to the local hip-hop scene dates back to the mid-'90s, when he was an early member of the group that would become the Rusty Ps, but in recent years he's become a more visible presence than ever before, thanks to his work with the group KingHellBastard and his frequent collaborations with other hip-hop acts. His latest release is a bit of a departure for the usually old-school-minded rapper. Recorded with producer Reason, the Know Flight Zone EP updates Coppafeel's sound with big, modern drums and flashy synthesizers. Reason will join Coppafeel on stage tonight for a release-party performance for the EP.
