Sign up to receive the latest on the city’s food scene. Hi, everyone. I’m MC Slim JB, and I’ll be reviewing new restaurants on Boston.com.

It's been a long, long time. 1 / 5 Back to Gallery Nostalgia tours aren't rare, nor are hip-hop nostalgia tours. But here's the thing about the upcoming MC Hammer tour: While it initially provoked eye-rolling as another money-milking machine drawing its cash from an affinity for days gone by, well, Hammer hasn't hurt 'em in a very long time.

Or see. Or hear. The inaugural “Deaf and Loud Symphonic Experience” is being billed by organizers as a first-of-its-kind event: The Sunday concert will bring three of the world’s best-known deaf performers — percussionist Evelyn Glennie, rapper Sean Forbes and singer Mandy Harvey — to the Orchestra Hall stage.
