Inflowential, Urban Sophisticates, The Balance 

When: Sat., Feb. 19, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: $7-9

Raleigh's Inflowential and Greensboro's the Urban Sophisticates share more than a state and the genre of hip-hop: Both bands gather emcees, live musicians and DJs in a quest to rebuild the live reputation of hip-hop, turning what's often a sloppy, unrehearsed bust or a paint-by-numbers recitation into a real-time, audience-and-musician interaction. They don't take on the challenge with identical sounds, though. As their name might suggest, the Sophisticates add a graceful soul touch to their rhymes, while Inflowential flexes its boom-bap with tinges of jazz and funk. —Grayson Currin
