Meet Our Readers: Edward Moses

          

Edward Moses.jpg - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
In 2000, Edward Moses's diverse musical upbringing began to suddenly make a lot of sense, as the whirlwinds of albums his parents had at home merged with his sudden discovery of Hip-Hop and Slam Poetry, all in a single summer. 17 years later, he's shared stages with Rap luminaries like Aesop Rock and Gift of Gab, all while trying to float his sneaker habit by disguising himself as a mild-mannered IT specialist at a Chicago start-up. Hailed as one of those "your favorite Chicago indie rapper's favorite indie rapper"-sort of folks, but also likely to talk your ear off about anything from the woes and Sisyphean doldrums of finding rare House records, to tiering systems in Capcom fighting games (yes, seriously).

Please join Moses and our other amazing readers on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf. Doors open at 7pm, and the show starts at 7:30. It's free, and 21-and-over. Please RSVP on Facebook.
