Join us for the first in a series of amazing hip hop shows we are coining DUEL OF THE IRON MIC in homage to GZA! Sunday, December 27 will showcase two of the undergrounds finest lyricists.

Our performers -


What happens when you mix the quirkiness of De La Soul, empowerment of Public Enemy, brashness of N.W.A., and sexual frustration of Richard Pryor? You get Vigatron, performer extraordinaire. Vigatron is a writer, rapper, poet, actor, producer and all around, international asshole. Vigatron has been at the forefront of the Cleveland hiphop scene, as a 2010 Cleveland Scene Magazine Music Award winner (rap/hiphop)and (as part of the group, N.O.I.R.) 2013 Rebel Army Radio Award winner (Best Group Record) and Ohio Hip Hop Awards, Album of the Year, nominee. Recently, he has made a smooth transition in to comedic and dramatic acting. Working with C-Town Film Factory and Caterpillar Event Productions, he has co-starred in short films such as, “Bob and Vig’s Humble Pie Slice of Life” and the Boston Underground Film Festival, Official Selection, “The Peter Party” (all available on youtube). In January, 2015, he made his stage play debut, as Vic, in Jay R. Fogle’s, “Karma”. He continues to perform with some of the wildest stage shows that money and decency will allow, and will continue to expand, set trends, and offend at every given opportunity, as long as it starts a dialogue.

Based in Cleveland Ohio,
Matthewmaticus makes hip-hop that bends the limits of the genre while taking cues from the classics. Defying simple comparisons, and with influences that range from David Bowie to Andre 3000 to GZA to Jay-Z (and back again), his music is a soulful cry from the depths of the Rust Belt.

Matthewmaticus tries to blend his funky, headbanger boogie sensibilities with the soul and funkiness that the flyover regions between coasts tends to foster. Lester Bangs once, at a party, described his music as an insult to the legacy of the Michael Stanley band, while Gore Vidal, Big Rube and Charlie Wilson stood in the corner and tried to figure out who in the hell the crazy guy was at the party who was screaming about Michael Stanley, and what it had to do with Matthewmaticus.
