Well, it's nice to see that even when blessed with an excess of talent, the Rumble still finds a way to suck yak balls. Some things never change. And yet . . . and yet it could've been so different. Looking at the semis lineup last week, it seemed so promising. Or maybe the judges just got wind that if Protokoll, Eli Reed, and Age Rings had made it to the finals, they were going to perform a single 90-minute collaborative set.

Cousin Cole & Certified MaxFriday the 13th at Enormous Room10 pm, $3
Cousin Cole is THAT DUDE. We've been geeking out on his shit for a while now, starting with his genius/hysterical/blog-meme-creating B-more-ish rework of the "Atlantic Records, T.I. Clearance" drop. But his new TOUGHER THAN FEATHERS EP on Flagrant Fowl is freshly-dropped and completely ace: if we DJ'd, we'd be dropping his Ignition-remix-remix every damn night.
