Local emcee Zilla Rocca will take the stage at PhilaMOCA for The Key’s second Tuesday Tune-Out tonight. Getting his start as one-half of rap duo 5 O’Clock Shadowboxers, Rocca welded his passion for film noir with his passion for hip hop to create his own “noir-hop” solo material. On each of his releases, from last year’s Party Like Villains to the collaborative Wu-Tang Pulp effort, Rocca samples clips from and makes references to film noir and pulp fiction from the ’40s and ’50s. Rocca will follow-up tonight’s Tune-Out set with a screening of a 2005 dark comedy starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. For more information and to RSVP, visit the Facebook event page.
