Time Out says

Alternative hip-hop icon Open Mike Eagle grew up on the South Side of Chicago, attending break dancing sessions at Promontory Point and rapping with the city-wide Nacrobats crew. Today, he's at forefront of a crop of cerebral, conscientious rappers who pair deeply-personal reflections with esoteric references to video games, ‘90s movies and comic books. OME's most recent album, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream, served as a tribute to his childhood in the now-demolished Robert Taylor Homes housing project in Chicago that toes the line between nostalgic reminiscence and timely social commentary. At Schubas, he's joined by Philadelphia rapper Sammus and surreal filmmaker Video Dave.
