I love pancakes. Not as much as Mac Lethal, to be sure, who paid delicious homage to them by speed-rapping about pancakes — while making pancakes. He’s also rap-raced a bag of microwave popcorn (he won) and exhaled an amazing 77-second rap without taking a breath. YouTube him. You’ll move fast to get tickets for his May 5 gig at Respectables in the 500 block of Clematis.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking Mac’s an all-gimmick guy. Sure, he can show off with absurdly fast musical feats when he feels like it, but he also slows it down so we can appreciate his slick writing and ultra-creative rhymes. He’s currently touring with Wax featuring IFTW, and they’ve got just two stops in Florida — Respectables on May 5th and at the Orpheum Theater in Tampa on May 6th.
Respectables is legendary for its live music and has the street cred to book someone like Mac Lethal. It’s so intimate that patrons can get up close and personal with the performers on stage. Plus, there’s a comfy back patio to chill between sets, and the bartenders there are the best.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, but I wouldn’t count on any being available that night. This is a not-to-be-missed show at one of Florida’s iconic venues. Bring your own syrup, of course.
