Delmar Hall hosted Aesop Rock, along with Rob Sonic and DJ Zone, Tuesday, July 11. Rock stuck with Open Mike Eagle as his one opener, a solid stylistic choice that proved to lend a smooth transition between the two acts. Eagle stood as one man, with one microphone, and one computer. I was curious to […]
