The ten best concerts this weekend: 11/30-12/2

2. MAC LETHAL @ MARQUIS THEATER | FRI, 11/30/12
It's a bit frustrating that after more than a decade of working tireously to build his name in hip-hop with clever wordplay and a distinctive cadence, the things Mac Lethal are most known for are a pair of gimmicky viral videos -- one of which he speed raps while cooking pancakes and another in which he tries his hand at replicating Chick-Fil-A's secret recipe -- and an incidental Tumblr dedicated to the face-palm inducing musings of his supposed cousin. A sometimes caustic, wickedly insightful Kansas City-based MC (aka David McCleary Sheldon) that earned his stripes battling it out at Scribble Jam, Lethal is a self-depricating everyman with a nimble flow and gift for expressing thoughtful observations and story telling. While the Rhymesayers version of 11:11 is his most tuneful record (try to scrub the hook "Calm Down Baby" above from your head...go ahead, we'll wait...), the original version of that album and Irish Goodbye, both issued on his own Black Cover imprint, represent his best and most affectingly honest work to date.

Wow, who picked the shows this week? You have moe. below some shitty rapper who is a youtube sensation? You have Winger over Jack Russell? Winger was the only concert I ever walked out during because it was so horrible.
