IMO Atmosphere would fit in perfectly w/ VIBES, he's played countless Festivles including multiple times at Bonaroo, coachella, even Headlined Warped tour. He plays w/ a band now rather then just an MC and his DJ "MR.Dibbs", He doesn't rap about killing bitches or selling drugs, he's very much against most "HARD" Drugs and tells his fans to stay away.

just a few of his hits...oh and his opener could be P.O.S or even Brother Ali

This is the kind of act that would draw me back to Vibes. Seeing Atmosphere would be something I would go out of my way for. Because I haven't seen him. I like diversity, I like something NEW.

He puts on a great show, I'm biased I've seen him well over 50+ Times, and was lucky to perform w/ him for about 1/2 of those, back when he had only a DJ (Mr.Dibbs) and a Hype man (Crescent Moon from Oddjobs). He definitely doesn't refer to his fans as bitches and hoes because a very large % of his fans are young females, 15 - 25 year olds. He's put out 7 studio albums and tours relentlessly. Pretty much shunned all Major Record labels and started up his own called Rhymesayers Entertainment which signed pretty much the WHO's WHO in underground/independent Hip hop. So even if they had an opener, you could pretty much have your pick from any artist on the roster and for get about "IF" these guys can sell tickets a Rhymesayers tour sells out.

Now by no stretch of the imagination am i saying Headlining 2 hr slot. by no means. Atmosphere sells tickets, for those that don't know he's on the level in hip hop what Umphree's Mcgee is for Jam Bands. if not bigger, he's regularly getting spins on MTVU and Much Music in Canada. Tours internationally every year and with the addition of the band, jamming or spontaneous freestyles are becoming the norm.

More importantly his fans follow him and buy his tickets, cds and merch. I've met some of his super fans that are 1 restraining order away from stalking him. IMO w/out specifically asking anyone at Vibes, his fan base are the same kids who would like Primus, Nas & Damian, Galactic or Bisco the cross over appeal is unique.

how about some local CT hip hop. like political animals. here is what the CT press has said about them.

"In some cases, brand-new musicians made their mark as though it were effortless. Political Animals have dominated the hip-hop scene without even having a record yet — their live show is that good."

The New Haven Advocate

"That’s how I discovered Political Animals, a trio of musicians doing a sort of the-Roots-in-miniature thing.There’s no rap-rock pretense here. They traffic in pure hip-hop — they just do it with live instruments. Wright’s drumming is simple and on point; he eschews complexity in favor of consistency with his breakbeats and funk rhythms. For her part, Harper does an excellent job as the band’s sole melody-maker. Without guitars or keys or samples to box her in, her basslines are huge and imaginative, built out of clever hooks and well-timed improv. Her style is a lot like Tim Commerford’s (Rage Against the Machine), which is to say that it’s dark, hard-edged, and staccato. Songs like “Sensory Deception” made it clear that their material is an outlet for critical thinking. The group is high-energy, different enough to stand out, but familiar enough to be instantly accessible."

The Hartford Advocate
