Smash Cut Magazine to give first performance in Knoxville

KNOXVILLE -- Smash Cut Magazine will give its first ever live event on August 10th at Relix Variety Theatre. A web magazine devoted to discussing, dissecting, and disassembling pop culture and media, the magazine was founded in 2012 by Knoxvillian Nathan Smith and Texan Alec Lindner to provide a forum for the most important issues today in culture and entertainment. Smash Cut firmly believes in spreading the good news about great art, and as part of their mission, they are proud to announce their expansion into the world of concerts, film screenings, and other cultural events. The first of hopefully many events to be held by Smash Cut in Knoxville, this all ages concert is headlined by "weirdo" Wisconsin wunderkind rappers Milo with Safari Al as part of their first national tour, the Geordi La Forgery Tour. The concert will cover a broad spectrum of rap and hip-hop styles and is sure to be one of the finest rap shows East Tennessee has ever seen.

Few rappers might be able to juggle topics as diverse as Wittgenstein and Wrestlemania, but if there’s one who can, it’s Milo. Active since 2011, alternative rapper Milo has quickly made a name for himself, combining textured instrumentals with referential humor and deep introspection to create a hip-hop sound all his own. He began his career in November of 2011 with I wish my brother Rob was here, which used instrumentals from artists like Flying Lotus, Com Truise, and Gold Panda, and followed it up in early 2012 with Milo Takes Baths. This year saw his first official release on the Hellfyre Club label, the double-EP Things That Happen at Day/Things That Happen at Night, and most recently dropped the mixtape Cavalcade earlier this July. While his name might be unfamiliar to many, he’s played festivals like SXSW and Soundset and received acclaimed from publications like MTV Hive, Impose, The Needle Drop, and Potholes In My Blog.

The concert will be held at Relix Variety Theatre on August 10th at 8:00 PM. Relix is located at 1208 N Central St in Knoxville's Happy Holler District. Tickets are ten dollars at the door but can be purchased in advance at Cash, credit, and debit will all be accepted at the door.
