In this week's dead tree edition of DC9, Observer contributor Chris Parker extols the virtues of Los Angeles rapper Busdriver. Writes Parker:

Busdriver's rack and pinion elocution corners like an Indy car, reaching speeds that would induce whiplash in his hip-hop peers. He sub-references the pop culture more profusely than Dennis Miller in his heyday, spinning lyrical webs elegant enough to rival Charlotte's barnyard creations, and as dense as Gravity's Rainbow.

Some high praise--and without even mentioning the fact that fellow L.A.-based emcee Abstract Rude will be joining Busdriver on this bill. Go figure.

So, yeah, for the heads in the crowd, this is gonna be a fine display of lyrical abilities--which is why we're stoked that the folks at Spune Productions have passed along a pair of tickets to us to pass along to one lucky reader for free. And that reader could be, well, you--if you shoot me an email right now with the words "The Wheels on the Bus" in the subject line. First person to do so gets the tickets. Cool? Cool. Now go write that email...

Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner.
