Urban Sophisticates, House of Fools, J Timber

"I always feel like Urban gets left out of the convo because we aren't in Raleigh or Chapel Hill, but all that is about to change," says Benton James, lead songsmith of the Urban Sophisticates. This Greensboro hip-hop troupe has spent the past several years honing a highbrow R&B take on hip-hop that James claims is totally affected by his Greensboro home. "It's more about talent here than just the hip-hop genre," he says, a remark that perhaps explains the addition of Americana-bent rockers House of Fools and indie rock wild child J Timber to the lineup for this not-so-hostile takeover. "This will be our first time playing together, but hopefully not our last," says James of the pairing with those acts. "I feel like this has been a long time coming." —Ashley Melzer
