Yup, you read it right. MF DOOM and Mos Def will be co-headlining a show in Chicago at the Congress Theater on January 29th!

Props to Octavius for pointing this show out to me. I already bought my ticket and I just found out three minutes ago.
Now, who's down for a Megabus trip to Chicago on January 29th?

Check out the official release below.
I'm so fucking excited.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FRIDAY JANUARY 29th 2010 the super-villain of hip-hop DOOM will come to wreak havoc in Chicago with his latest partner in crime… MOS DEF! The proper authorities have been notified…consider yourself warned! Sources also say MIKE RELM has joined the crew on this night of music and mayhem.

DOOM is coming. Formerly MF DOOM, born in London, raised in Long Island, DOOM (Daniel Dumile) has been one of the most unique and imaginative sounds in hip hop since he was ZevLoveX in KMD. After band tragedy and getting dropped from Elektra label due to controversial art direction, Zev went underground swearing revenge against the industry that crossed him. As the legend grew, a mysterious masked figure arose surfacing as MF DOOM and went on to release critically acclaimed Operation: Doomsday, Take me to Your Leader album as King Geedorah, and Vaudeville Villain under yet another alias, Viktor Vaughn. MF DOOM’s Mmm..Food (Rhymesayers Ent.) launched him into hip hop notoriety which led to full album collaborations with other groundbreaking artists such as Dangerdoom with Danger Mouse and Madvillain with Madlib. Ever evolving, there’s no telling what madness DOOM will bring, recently releasing Born Like This earlier in 2009.

An unlikely accomplice in villainy, MOS DEF has been sighted meeting and performing with DOOM around the world! From the musical hotbed of Brooklyn, Mos first came to prominence as half the hip hop group Black Star with Talib Kweli in the mid-nineties. His first solo album Black on Both Sides was an instant classic with hits like “Little Miss Fat Booty.” His recent album, The Ecstatic, was praised by critics and fans, welcoming him back to the forefront of hip hop from his time away in major films.

FOR CHICAGO ONLY, MIKE RELM joins the crew with his one-of-a-kind live show that blends video, audio, turntablism and crowd-interaction. His innovative performances earned him a spot touring with the performance-art group Blue Man Group.

Chicago’s own Qwel and Maker, BBU, The Comeups, Rude 1, Trew, Demchuk and RTC have signed on for support, even as they continue to deny any knowledge of DOOM’s whereabouts.

We’ll even have live LAZER GRAFFITI demonstration in the lobby by Kid Static!
