The Show: Rig 1 with Nuit, Touch People at 9 tonight at The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St. Tickets, $7, at the door.
About Rig 1: You may recognize Ian McElroy from his spot behind the keyboards in Omaha-based and nationally recognized punk band Desaparecidos, but his main gig is performing as hip-hop MC Rig 1. McElroy began composing music as a child growing up in Omaha, and his attention eventually turned to making rhymes. Rig 1, who will perform with The Faint's Clark Baechle and FVTHR^'s Dustin Bushon, features smart rhymes, super-fast lyrics and infectious backing tracks as good as your favorite indie rock band.
