LiL iFFy: Pilot Light 11/2 and 11/3
The greatest wizard rapper of all time made an announcement today. It's time to get your wands out, Knoxville, because Wand Out, LiL IFFy's next full-length album has been set to release on November 2nd. That would be plenty to make all of the hybrid Harry Potter/Rap enthusiasts out there nearly wet themselves, but there's more.
November 2nd and 3rd, Metro Pulse's "Best Hip-Hop Act," will return to The Pilot Light for a two-day album release show. The November 2nd show will be 18+ while the show on the 3rd will be for all ages. Now, normally, if given the choice between a LiL iFFy age restricted show and an all ages show, we would advise you to go to the 18+ show unless of course, you were under the age of 18. However, iFFy and his Magic Hustle cohorts are giving ample reason to go ahead and attend both.
Now here's the part that makes the hip-hop fanboy in me completely giddy: for the show on the 3rd, iFFy will be performing on stage with an orchestra. (Take a second to rub your eyes and read that back to make sure you read that right.) What's being dubbed the WandcOrchestra, made of a collection of legitimate classical musicians, will be joining iFFy on stage to give some seriously interesting new dynamics to iFFy's already largely original act.
Nobody out there (and I don't just mean in Knoxville) does hip-hop shows from a pure entertainment standpoint better than LiL iFFy. Get ready, Knoxville.
