Rapdragons, Sam Herring, 83 Cutlass

When: Mon., Feb. 11, 9 p.m. 2013

Rapdragons are a Foreigner-sampling, weed-loving Baltimore hip-hop duo. At their best, they spill emcee Greg Ward's anxious and world-weary rhymes over beats that cavort with the same playfulness as the city's weirdo indie rock enclave. Baltimore rapper and Rapdragons collaborator Cutlass 83 is menacing and minimal, using spartan beats as base-level platforms for unflinching verses about hardships and handicaps. Just days before reuniting his college band, Art Lord & the Self Portraits, for a sold-out Raleigh show, Sam Herring of Future Islands opens this small front-room gig. —Grayson Currin
