MAN ON THE MOON
Hardcore Kid Cudi fans probably caught the introspective rapper in recent weeks at a Bacardi-sponsored Terminal 5 event and a not-so-secret Brooklyn show by his mentor Kanye West. (Those gigs themselves followed a three-night stand at the Roseland in April.) Nevertheless, Cudi's back in town for a Williamsburg Waterfront concert sure to include a performance of his new single "Perfect Is the Word"; true to the MC's claims of a shift toward rock, it sounds rather a lot like Jim Morrison singing "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane. Decide tonight if that's a good thing or not.
