Who is the realest? Apr 20, 2012

by Randi

Kyle Abraham’s work seems to exist in places of paradox. I often see Cunningham and hip-hop mentioned in the same sentence when referring to his work.

by camtea

I walk toward Kyle Abraham's Live! The Realest MC through pillars of the Seattle dance scene on opening night: Wade Madsen, Catherine Cabeen, Karn Junkinsmith, Donald Byrd, Cyrus Khambatta, and more folded in the crowd I imagine ... Lane Czaplinski sips a beer, face half obscured by the bare two-by-four railing as the show nears beginning.
