Playing it forward

A year behind bars during the early years was not entirely lost time for Felipe Coronel. It gave him the focus to hone his talents, and the motivation to take a few political science classes, both of which transformed him into a deeply political, determined, and charitable artist. Finding new ways to play out confrontation, Coronel works under the moniker Immortal Technique and carries the label of “battle rapper.” Social commentary and fierce independence meet in his music, and he refuses to back down from either while continuing to perfect impeccable (and perhaps immortal) techniques.

Thursday 4/11 $16-18, 9pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
