The angsty emo-rap vet celebrates the release of his new album, Depart from Me, with a two-part party sure to be longer on spleen-venting than on bottle-popping. Both nights at Southpaw feature support from Cage’s various Def Jux homies as well as headliner album signings. Who knows, maybe even Shia LaBeouf, who recently directed the music video for “I Never Knew You,” will show up. With Yak Ballz and Despot.
