South Park Coalition 25th Anniversary Numbers April 14, 2012
Over the past 25 years, few rap cliques anywhere have been as prolific and consistent as Houston's South Park Coalition. To celebrate a quarter-century worth of underground rhymes and grinds on Saturday night, the S.P.C. brought both the quality and quantity of music it's known for to the dark, dank confines of Numbers.
It was an interesting pairing of artists and venue. Much like Numbers, the S.P.C. seems as though it's been a fixture of the Houston music scene since the dawn of time. Both have weathered constantly changing trends in the music industry by doing their own thing and never apologizing for it.
Though the corner of Westheimer and Taft is about as far away culturally from the corner of Bellfort and MLK that it's possible to get without leaving the city, the long-lived dance club somehow seemed an altogether fitting place to celebrate the legacy of one of Houston's most influential musical forces.
