Tonight, the Mateel presents Immortal Technique and Brother Ali as they kick off their War and Peace tour. On Immortal Technique: He’s Peruvian out of Harlem, he has intense political views that embrace revolutionary activism and my 17-year-old son has been a fan for years now. On Brother Ali: He’s from Minnesota, he brought serious hook and soul when I saw him onstage with Atmosphere at Outside Lands in 2009 and he delivers messages on faith and love with equal parts earnestness and grit. He’s also, to parrot the conventional summary, “Muslim, albino and legally blind.” But you should check him out for his nerve, not his novelty. The gig is hosted by the “ghetto ambassador” and Brooklyn native, Poison Pen, tickets are $27 and doors open at 7 p.m. All ages!
