Theophilus London, Phony Ppl, A Rooster for the Masses 

When: Sat., Feb. 4, 8:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $12-15

Theophilus London mixes computer pop and hip-hop with enviable flair. The Brooklyn MC first appeared several years ago, flowing over old-school breakdance beats while hailing Morrissey as one of his influences. TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek dug his throwback style and produced his debut album Timez Are Weird These Days, released last summer. His "Why Even Try?" flirts with bubblegum funk reminiscent of Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love." Also from Brooklyn come Phony Ppl. The classically trained teen collective, made up of eight members, uses mature instrumentation for feel-good hooks, creating infectious R&B gems. Raleigh's angular and agitated A Rooster for the Masses opens. —Ashleigh Phillips
