Viral video superstar and wacky self-mythologizing rapper Riff Raff takes the stage at Liberty Hall tonight. We interviewed him two years ago when he played a Goomba Rave event at the Bottleneck. Some baffling highlights from the interview:
Chip: In "Orion’s Belt," you rap “When it comes to hateful words, I got skin like a rhinoceros” To what extent do you pay attention to what dumbshit interweb bloggers like myself say about your work?
Riff Raff: i LAUGH AT iT ALL iTS SO FUN & FUNNY TO THiNK THAT CHERRY COKE & CHERRY PEPSi DONT TASTE ALiKE BUT THEY DO KiNDA TASTE ALiKE AT MiDNiGHT
Chip: Do you ever get a boner when performing with Little Debbie and Kitty Pryde. Because I sure do when I watch those videos!
Riff Raff: YOU CAN HAVE THEM BOTH .. i DONT HAVE SEX WiTH ANYONE

The crowd for the composer and legendary Velvet Underground co-founder John Cale on Tuesday at the LAC is likely to skew a bit older. Drakkar Sauna opens up this show, which is part of the 940 Live series. We're guessing it's a dream come true for LFK's still-freakiest duo. More details here via LAC.
Will you be a true scenester and go to both? Or will you follow Chip's lead, and head to the Miley Cyrus show in KC tonight.
Chip: "I hope she licks a bunch of stuff."
