The Middlebury College community was rocked on Wednesday afternoon, after a Facebook message informed students that Gift of Gab of Blackalicious sustained an injury in France. The rap duo was scheduled to perform on campus this evening, and with tickets already sold, the Concert Committee was hard pressed to find a replacement…fast! Well, only 24 hours later, the substitute artist was announced: Talib Kweli.
While I am not complaining, I still have no idea how they were able to find such a stellar act so quickly, or, embarrassingly enough, how to pronounce his name…I can empathize, though; I mean Whelan-Wuest, thanks mom and dad. Anyways, doors open at 8pm, show at 9pm TONIGHT at the Kenyon Athletic complex, and, as far as I know, tickets are still available.
