Eyedea & Abilities Play the Late Show

July 16th, 2010

Eyedea & Abilities were just a couple of friends in Minneapolis before they decided to link up as an MC (Eyedea)/DJ (Abilities) pair while still in high school. They got some well-deserved recognition in the underground hip-hop world following the release of two abstract, introspective albums, First Born and E&A, in 2001 and 2004 respectively. After several years spent working on their own sounds, they reunited on 2009’s By the Throat, which delves into the world of rock. Check them out when Eyedea & Abilities (above, doing “Burn Fetish”) hit Mercury Lounge tomorrow night for the late show.
