Though Astronautalis is famously from Jacksonville, Florida – seemingly one of the least likely places for a verbose alternative rapper to make his mark – he still has some roots in Orlando. His 2003 debut, You and Yer Good Ideas, was released by Orlando-based independent label Fighting Records. Tonight, the now- Minneapolis-based MC takes the stage along with two other big names in the alt-rap world, Bleubird and Yoni Wolf (of legendary Anticon acts cLOUDDEAD and Why?). Expect him to feel right at home on Backbooth’s stage as he performs tracks from his decade-long career, hopefully along with new mate- rial from his yet-to-be-titled 2015 release. The well-traveled wordsmith is headed to Australia and Europe next year, so this may be your last chance to see him for a while. Bring some clever Orlando- related topics to shout out as suggestions during his freestyle segment and see how many words he can rhyme with “Dropbox.” 

ASTRONAUTALIS with Yoni Wolf, Bleubird and 10:30 | 7-11 p.m. Friday, Dec. 19 | Backbooth, 37 W. Pine St. | 407-999-2570 | backbooth.com | $12
