Low End Theory at The Airliner Was a Hot, Sweaty Mess

Last night, we were (tardy to the party) introduced to an event that's become a defining part of the local hip-hop scene: Low End Theory, which takes place every Wednesday at The Airliner in Lincoln Heights. When we showed up at 8:00 p.m. for a show that began at about 9:30, the line was already winding down the street and around the corner. Comprised of mostly kids in their late teens and early 20s -- it's an 18+ show -- the crowd waited patiently to see a mystery rapper calling himself Captain Murphy, who turned out to be Flying Lotus.
