Grand Buffet

A little more than two years ago, Ceeplus and DJ Jester hit the Rudyard's stage with Pittsburgh's Grand Buffet; clearly, it was a good night, as the three acts are teaming up again this week on the very same stage. Pennsylvania's Jackson and Lord Grunge have been doing the DIY hip-hop thing as Grand Buffet for more than a decade now, and though they're known for their jokes, you'd be ill-advised to sleep on their skills. In both rhyming, particularly freestyling, and production — don't mock the CD player they rock; it's packed with some well-crafted tracks — the image of haphazard funnymen they present belies both their hardworking ethos and extreme facility with hip-hop forms. With work completed on January's King Vision, their first full-length album in nearly eight years, and coming off nearly two months on the road opening for Of Montreal (!), Grand Buffet is busy as usual; you'd do well to pay attention while you can still fit in the room.
