No doubt you read our awesome Q&A with Atmosphere's Slug from the other day -- but even if you didn't, you probably want to go see the group on Saturday at Mesa Amphitheater. After all, the group's latest record, The Family Sign, is loaded with taut rhymes and minimal beats. That, and rapper Slug is a seriously funny guy.
But we know what you are asking yourself: "Whatever will I eat before heading down to the show?"
Mesa's Cheba Hut has you covered. The chain offers weed-inspired treats (do you have your medical sandwich card, huh?) and, on Saturday, August 27, members of Atmosphere will be on hand at the Mesa sandwich shop from 1 to 2 p.m. to sign autographs.
Cheba Hut and Universatile Music announced the promotion yesterday via their respective Facebook pages.
I imagine the shop will be pretty packed during that particular hour, so if you hate indie-hop and just have a case of the munchies, you might want to visit one of the Valley chain's three other locations.
