Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Yes, we know what you're thinking. And no, there is absolutely no way to predict if the real Doom will show up (trust us, the promoters aren't involved in this charade). What is known is that regardless of who the headliner is, the rest of the artists on this bill are more than capable of carrying a show on their own. Qwel and Maker are stalwarts and are savvy enough to tame a restless crowd; Mike Relm's mastery of the turntables has impressed on an international scale; and Mos Def, well, if his appearance on Austin City Limits this past week (he and K'Naan were the first hip-hop artists ever to perform on the show) is any indication of what's to come, you're in for something special. Package them all together and what you have is one damn good insurance plan if Doom decides not to show up. DJ's Rude One, Trew, Demchuk and RTC will spin throughout. (J. Min)
