Outkast is gone but not forgotten. Or maybe it’s forgotten but not gone. That’s more like it, actually. The group – perhaps the most important in Southern rap history, and certainly the most popular – doesn’t cast the shadow it did 10 years ago, or even 5. …Big Boi insisted from the stage on Monday night at Brooklyn Bowl: his partner is in the studio working on his album. And yes, there will be more Outkast to follow thereafter…

In the now, though, Big Boi is in a liminal place, somewhere between flamekeeper and nostalgia act.

Not that you notice during his performance, which is slick, reliable and impossibly fun… Hearing Big Boi perform only his half of Outkast’s hits was a reminder of what modes he was responsible for in the group: pugnacity, salaciousness, street savvy. -[NYTimes]

The above review comes from Big Boi‘s appearance at Brooklyn Bowl on 9/6 (where Yelawolf made a surprise appearance). One day later, Big Boi teamed with Dr. Dog and The Knocks for an eclectic Tuesday night at NYU. It was their annual Mystery Concert, open only to NYU students, though as you can see in the pictures in this post, it was enjoyed buy at least one younger patron too (who is actually Big Boi’s son Cross Patton. he was on stage at Brooklyn Bowl too). The other guy performing is Big Boi’s hypeman Blackowned C-Bone.

Dr. Dog will hit the road in October to team up with Here We Go Magic for a string of dates that do NOT include NYC. Big Boi doesn’t have any more NYC-area shows coming up, that we know about, at the moment either
