Album release show Saturday, Aug. 23 at Mad Planet

By Evan Rytlewski

In a city rife with alternative rap ensembles, KingHellBastard still stands out. The eight-member collective includes established veterans like the prolific Dana Coppafeel (who, with his viscous, quick-witted raps has established himself as one of the scene’s brightest gems in recent years) and they specialize in the kind . . .

Barbara Walters @ Alverno’s Pitman Theatre, 7 p.m. Who would want to know the lurid details of iconic journalist Barbara Walters’ sex life? Apparently plenty of people.
