Up Close & Merciful
Carnage is offering a very special night out at the Dakota on Friday, May 2nd at 11 PM. This special event happening only at the Dakota will feature some of the beat box stylings Carnage is known for, but will focus strongly on the lyrical dexterity that separates Carnage from other wordsmiths. His performance this night will be a bit of a departure from Carnage’s average bar and show crowd. Carnage is known for his intense, loud and in-your-face performances, but he and his band plan on taking it down a notch with this intimate presentation at the Dakota.
Praised as one of the press and live show goer’s favorite performers, Carnage the Executioner is a musical impresario to be reckoned with. While he has made a great name as a live solo and duo performer, he is taking a step in a new direction with his new foray into live band work. Carnage puts on a performance spectacle that is rarely if ever matched in the Twin Cities highly artistic Hip Hop community. He’s the same beast all have grown to love, but those in attendance should plan on seeing a seeing a whole new, welcomed side of the Carnage on May 2.
