For some reason we haven’t figured out yet, it seems completely fitting that Main Attrakionz are making their live New York debut at The New Museum for the Get Weird series. It’s not that they make especially weird music—although some if it is certainly hard to wrap your ears around. It’s more that the duo just seem perfectly primed to make one of those weird crossovers into the worlds of people that don’t care about rap. This isn’t a bad thing, it’s just a wider audience and yet another chance for us to slip aesthetically similar records like Three 6 Mafia’s Mystic Stylez into everyday conversations. Download/stream the mix below (CNN! Gunplay!), see Main Attrakionz at the New Museum next Friday, August 26th, and then—why not!—hit the after party at Santos Party House, which also features DJ sets from Salem and Ghe20 G0th1k. Oh also, if you want to try your luck at winning tickets to the New Museum show, leave your name in the comments of this post, and remember to use a legit email address so we can let you know if you won.
