Kooley High, Professor Toon, Defacto Thezpian, Brassious Monk 

When: Fri., June 17, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $8-$10



As the only rapper to represent Durham during last month's Moogfest, Professor Toon used the home-stage advantage to reawaken his faithful. Back in January, after all, he sweated out his entire soul on the same Motorco stage in an effort to get the city super lit about his debut album, Take Notes. His new mantra—"Take Extra Notes, Defeat Obstacles," or "TENDO"—acknowledges some of that journey's setbacks, as well as the continuing struggle. He shares the stage here with a Triangle rap act that can relate, Kooley High, a five-man unit following the departure of Rapsody. Outside the rhyme books that remaining Kooley High emcees Tab-One and Charlie Smarts have filled for their own solo works and in preparation for the group's forthcoming 9th Wonder-executive produced album, the Raleigh crew has taken its share of detailed notes on perseverance. It's why they're still sharing stages with rising rap talent like Toon, Defacto Thezpian, and Brassious Monk. Tonight, there'll be more pens and notes passed than torches. Eric Tullis
