The Sugarhill Gang
It's possible that modern hip-hop would look a lot different if the Sugarhill Gang hadn't come around. Their 1979 single "Rapper's Delight" ushered the genre into the mainstream, with other hip-pioneers like Run DMC and Erik B. & Rakim following right behind. 40 years later and original Gang members Wonder Mike and Master Gee are still going strong, and they'll be performing in Sandpoint alongside Grandmaster Mele Mel of groundbreaking hip-hop collective the Furious 5. The Hive, $25, 9 p.m.

Her new album Carnies & Cowboys plays like a musical autobiography.
