Soundset Before Party

Another sign of how big their festival has become, Rhymesayers Entertainment is throwing a Soundset Before Party at First Ave this year in addition to the usual after-party, and it’s almost a festival within itself. Hometown favorite Brother Ali will deliver his only (advertised) performance of the weekend alongside some of his crew’s longtime Los Angeles cohorts, Slug’s old Felt partner Murs and Step Brothers, the duo featuring Evidence of Dilated Peoples fame and Eminem’s former DJ, Alchemist. The Lioness, DJ Abilities and more perform. (8 p.m. Sat., First Avenue, $20-$25.) The after-party has been left it in the very capable turntabling hands of the Get Cryphy DJs. Chris Riemenschneider

Price: $20 - $25
