WR282: 3Peat

For the first time since our milestone 200th episode, we're back in the West End for a chaotic discussion with Winnipeg's best rap outfit, [3Peat](http://threepeatmusic.bandcamp.com/)! The group -- frequent guest E.GG, plus Steve, Dill the Giant, and manager Anthony Carvalho -- talks about its upcoming European tour, the way the 3Peat sound has progressed since their debut EP, and their acceptance within music scenes of all stripes. Hear a new 3Peat song on the podcast, too! Fittingly, this episode is brought to you by 3Peat's label, [Fourth Quarter Records](http://www.fourthquarterrecords.com/), where you can get some great local hip-hop and those glorious 3Peat hoodies you've been seeing everywhere. It's also brought to you by [Local Jukebox Birthday Bands as Bands](http://www.facebook.com/events/285537361980181/), May 5 at the Park Theatre. It's a similar concept to the experiment we tried last year with the "Mutual Appreciation Society" show, but this one is a lot more ambitious (and we're not involved in it). Local bands will be performing full sets of other local bands' material (and vice versa). A quick look at the lineup is proof enough that this show will be a blast. ...
