The audience was a little thin on the ground on Aug. 26 (it was a Monday night, after all) but a talented group of hip hop/rappers rolled into the Duncan Showroom for a super night of solid vibes.

The Currency Exchange Tour featured some Stateside rappers, supported by emcee Leviathan and a great group of Island and even Valley performers.

The event went out over the net as well, but those of you who didn’t get to hear it one way or the other missed out on a good night.
