Kyle James, the son of Kansas City mayor Sly James, has achieved notoriety for all of the wrong reasons. He seems to have a knack for finding himself on the wrong side of the law. James would much rather be known for his burgeoning career as half of the hip-hop duo C.O.A. Friday's show provides an opportunity to hear how James stacks up against two of the area's top hip-hop acts. Godemis, half of the accomplished Ces Cru, is Friday's headliner. The prolific Steddy P. has been making vital sounds for years. Tef Poe and Adrian Truth open the show. Tickets to the 10 p.m. show are $7 in advance.
