Hip-hop duo Noah-O and DJ Mentos, collectively known as Analog Suspects, are hosting an album release party this Friday night, March 8th, at The Hof in Scott’s Addition.
Presented by Marc Cheatham of The Cheats Movement, the one-night event will be hosted by Gigi Broadway and emcee Cole Hicks.
The night will also feature performances by J. Slim (RVA), Santana Brothers (NYC), and Cadillac Cat (RVA). Hip Hop Henry (Nighttime Maneuvers on WRIR) will be DJing the night as well.
Analog Suspects will perform their new album Transmission 001 live in the Dark Room at the Hofheimer Building in Scott’s Addition. Transmission 001 is their sophomore album, following their critically celebrated debut The Rain. Both Noah and Mentos are RVA hip-hop vets. They came together last year to create a new hip-hop duo. It’s been called Richmond’s own version of Run The Jewels. The combination of Noah’s supreme lyricism and Mentos’s boom jazz-influencedfluenced production has sparked a resurgence in their creative work and fan support throughout Richmond and seasoned hip-hop communities.
Doors to The Darkroom (in the back of the second floor of The Hof) open Friday evening at 8:00 PM with music beginning at 9:00. Tickets are $10 at the door.
The hof is located at 2818 W. Broad Street in Scott’s Addition.
