Bill Etra will be there, doing the live video thing and you know it's gonna be dope 'cause Kid Lucky's directing this himself.

Tomorrow also sees Killa Kela kick off a bunch of UK dates plus a sojourn to St. Petersburg. The first gig's in Reading so if you haven't already peeped Kela's new show (featuring combinations and permutations of DJ Skeletrik, MC Trip, Rookwood, Spider J and The Elysian String Quartet!) then you best get down there or visit Kela's site for the updated lowdown.
If you can't for one reason or another get outta your armchair but are still in need of a beatbox fix, check out this MuchVibe commercial featuring Poizunus. This is currently airing across Canada on MuchVibe & MuchMusic and is most definitely worth a watch.
