Tuesday brings all you happy LAists a little hip hop, a little country, a little rock, a little pop and a lot of conversation. It all sounds good, so choose wisely.

Rapper/activist Chuck D of Public Enemy and comedian/activist Margaret Cho come together tonight at 7:00 PM for a Hammer Forum conversation. Held at UCLA's Hammer Museum, this series of events covers current social and political issues during lectures, conversations, performances and panel discussions. LAist hasn't heard Margaret Cho in action but—being acquainted with Chuck D's writings—would assume this is going to be an interesting and entertaining evening. Admission is free and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis so arrive early.

Indie hip hop is the order of the night at The Echo. Free Moral Agents, side project of Isaiah "Ikey" Owens of The Mars Volta, are performing with Busdriver and DJ Nobody. Doors open at 8:00 PM and tickets are $5.00.
