When: Sat., Jan. 28, 10:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $8

The Pour House website recommends Urban Sophisticates for fans of Jay-Z, Wiz Khalifa and Kooley High. Well, one out of three's pretty good, if you're playing baseball. Bearing little resemblance to the commercial bangers of Hov and Wiz, the Greensboro hip-hop band sticks closer to its Tar Heel brethren in Kooley, punctuating canny, club-friendly rhymes and original organic beats with soulful hooks and brass instrumentation. Three years removed since releasing its impressive third album, Classic Material, the group of seasoned performers is at the top of its game when playing to a packed house, as it should be on this night. Durham rapper Toon delivers uneven bars in the opening slot. —Spencer Griffith
