Kooley High, Laura Reed, Napoleon Wright II

When: Thu., Feb. 14, 9 p.m. 2013

Toward the end of Charlie Smarts' new video for his two-year-old mixtape track "Torture," the Kooley High emcee gets in a bathtub, submitting himself to Chinese water torture from the leaky faucet above his forehead. It's an act of sacrifice—purging both him and his bandmates of the past, exorcising their artistic agonies before handing the entirety of their upcoming album's direction to 9th Wonder, who'll be executive producer of the yet-to-be-titled LP. The race to its release continues at the venue where the local love for this hip-hop crew began. Laura Reed, Napoleon Wright II and Sandra Banks Thompson join the 9 p.m. bill. —Eric Tullis

Price: $8-12
