The time has come again, and we hope you're as pumped as we are for this weekend's psychitzophrenic spread. It's all about the well-rounded experience: You can ponder art over an exhibition of electronica artists at the SLAP Conference, check out a Robert Plant sound-a-like or groove to the sweet vocal caresses of erstwhile R&B criminal R. Kelly. If you're (somehow) still unmotivated, the second annual S.L.UM. fest features some of the most promising St. Louis hip-hop artists in a night that spans 12 hours and at least 100 artists.
