9 pm, Wednesday September 25 | $14 advance, $16 day of show.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 

[GOING BACK TO HALIFAX] A favored pet of more wide-ranging cultural tastemakers ever since he began recording decidedly idiosyncratic hip-hop ’round Nova Scotia under the Buck 65 imprimatur a quarter-century ago, the former Richard Terfry has nudged ever closer to widespread recognition, via Trailer Park Boys soundtrack appearances and a critically acclaimed concept album for Warners. But his beats, however eclectic the source material, are too intricate for sheer novelty impact, while his commitment to lyrical absurdities seemingly defy serious regard. Possessed of an infectious and wholly inimitable flow, rather like a shit-faced master storyteller continuing his yarn while falling down a flight of stairs, he’s never quite been embraced for the more poignant narrative raps. Even his sizable cult remains unsure of the newly stark direction promised from the career provocateur upon his long-imminent and still unnamed post-divorce collection.
