LEGACY, DJ Merlin, Sun Up Son Down, Firehead 

When: Fri., Dec. 7, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $7

At that moment when North Carolina hip-hop seemed prepared for national ascendance, with Little Brother on a major and 9th Wonder working with stars and their extended coteries earning wide attention, L.E.G.A.C.Y. could have been the rogue success. His reckless charisma and dramatic delivery offered support for his "rock star" proclamations. But here he is, hosting his ninth local birthday celebration, in which he parties while the decent-to-avoidable bands of his pals perform. It's a fitting metaphor for the disappointing torpor of what could have been his career.—Grayson Currin
