An eloquent, expeditious rapper if there ever was one, leftfield MC and Mush recording artist Busdriver uses the stage to revel in intellectual wordplay and tongue twisters. He works alone, programming tracks from a sampler he's got tucked at the side of the stage. The bare stage makes no difference - with his flow and ability to rile a crowd into a slobbering frenzy, he's a one-man entertainer. A mid-week slot at the large Club Soda was no exception. He walked onto the stage looking to win over a casual crowd and walked off an hour later with most of them in his pocket. - DN
