AJ Jordan: The Crescendo
Who?: Underground rap/hip-hop outfit featuring Jordan and collaborator C. Lampke.
Why?: "Welcome To the Party," the new single, which has racked up nearly 1,000 single downloads via iTunes, ably displays Jordan's microphone skills, and is a fitting representation of the Buffalo underground hip-hop scene.
What's next?: A new CD/DVD/Comic package titled "The Sentimental Situations" is said to be poised for release. Jordan and crew take over Big Orbit's Soundlab (110 Pearl St.) at 8 tonight. Just Ending Now and Konspiracy are also on the bill. Admission is $10 at the door.
