The Beat Down 3 

When: Wed., Aug. 7, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $7
A beat without an emcee is often like a rebel without a cause, and sometimes the producers behind them have more battle and showcase triumphs than credits on rewarding, structured songs. Hopefully, The Beat Down's previous champ—rising Raleigh producer and soul processor CGMuzik—won't fall into such a trap and will find an emcee to animate his hip-hop classicism. At this event, the charge for CGMuzik and his fellow judges, The Real Laww and Syncere, is to reward beats packed with the potential of adventure, not the ones that only exist as some sort of loud playground. Regardless, the drum kits on display should still ring with marvels. —Eric Tullis
