Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic, DJ Zone, Homeboy Sandman

When: Thu., June 16, 8:30 p.m. 2016

Nearing 40 years old, Aesop Rock is all grownsed up. Well, kinda. The acclaimed rapper has recently rededicated himself to two childhood hobbies, skateboarding and drawing. Perhaps that’s an effort to recapture some of his waning youth in the lined face of adulthood. His latest record, The Impossible Kid, ruminates on aging and how relationships — with friends, family and ourselves — change over time. In typical Aesop fashion, it’s whip-smart and poignant. It also reveals a newfound sense of humor, suggesting that with age and wisdom comes lightness and willingness to not take everything so damn seriously. Aesop Rock plays the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington on Thursday, June 16, with Rob Sonic, DJ Zone and Homeboy Sandman.

Price: $18/20. AA
