TONIGHT: Cypher Series w/ Chyse x David Chief


Tonight in downtown Burlington, the Cypher Series is making a return — with one of the best rappers in the state headlining. Oh, and one of the best producers, too. This is a hot ticket.

The Cypher Series was originally a weekly event, and it was essentially a community service being run by rap dad (and business, man) Colby Stiltz. He’s been hustling in these mountains for a long time now, long enough to go through multiple re-brands, huge life changes and mentor one of the most promising young crews around, STILTZgang.

Once the time commitment of hosting those weekly shows started to burn him out, though, he wisely took a step back to re-strategize. The result: monthly Cyphers with top notch headliners, and much stronger turnouts, too. For September, the spooky talented Chyse will be doing a showcase set and lo-fi master David Chief will be playing beats all night.

As ever, anyone is welcome to show up and rock. Bring your own beats, or hop onboard for a high energy cypher. All in all, an entertaining Thursday night is yours for a paltry three bucks. You can’t beat that.
