Sage Francis and Solillaquists of Sound | 9 p.m. Thursday, 23 | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | thesocial.org
Having think-rap giant Sage Francis back in town would be occasion enough, as would having our own hip-hop superheroes Solillaquists of Sound electrify the stage like they especially do for their transcendental hometown shows. But having them both back together? Well, this is gonna be huge. Orlando knew the Solillaquists’ worth early on, but it was Francis who showed it to the world in 2005 by taking them under wing and on tour. From that springboard, the real-life family group vaulted to national profile, where they rolled out a grand multimedia artistic odyssey that would etch them as the most important Orlando indie rap act, certainly of their time and perhaps of all time. The original combination of these forces made some serious magic and history. Now just imagine what the reunion will be like.
