Swollen Members

Canadian hip-hop trio Swollen Members (Prevail, Mad Child, Rob the Viking) kick off their tour tonight in our fair city. With six albums and countless live shows under their belts, these vets have earned a well-deserved place in the indie pantheon (to say nothing of their induction into the Rock Steady Crew early in their career). Swollen’s latest full-length, last year’s Armed to the Teeth, saw the boys dropping “Bollywood Chick,” a highly sexualized ode to Indian cinema hotties with decent dance moves as the disc’s first single. Featuring Tech N9NE, it’s classic party rap—meaning: good, stupid fun. With Jay Barz, Cool Nutz. KEVIN CAPP
