People Under the Stairs/Pease/Think 

When: Sat., Dec. 1, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $12 ADV, $14 DOS
Los Angeles’ People under the Stairs are known as the Steely Dan of hip-hop because they take such an esoteric approach. Their new album, Highlighter, attests to that. The group’s eighth album starts with the Tribe Called Quest-like “Self-Destruct,” a track of atmospheric beats and tongue-twisting raps that sets the stage for a terrific collection of tunes. It’s a testament to the group’s beat-making abilities that a disc of instrumentals accompanies the album. DJs love these guys for their ability to adroitly mix turntable scratches with jazz riffs.
