PHOTOS: The Palmer Squares, Shlick Smit, Benny Els, Rabbi Darkside @ Abbey Pub 7/17/14
LA-based hip hop builder Shlick Smit put a show together at Chicago’s Abbey Pub last Thursday. Benny Els and Rabbi Darkside came from Brooklyn and The Palmer Squares are Chicago born and raised. Beyond the unique styles of each bill player, they all brought a common rhythmic energy to the intimate crowd of bouncing hands circling around. Although most came out for the goofy lyric slices and speedboat flow of The Palmer Squares, Rabbi Darkside’s famous freestyling and Shlick Smit/Benny Els’ sparkling duo dynamic kept quality tight throughout the night. Check out our photos from the show.
