2 Skinnee J's, Royal Teeth

When: Mon., May 14, 8 p.m. 2012

Ostensibly using the 2012 Mayan apocalypse as an excuse for yet another reunion tour, 2 Skinnee J's return to Raleigh in full-band electric form. Geeking out on Star Wars and other bits of pop culture, the goofy group was one of the more unique acts of the rap-rock persuasion, but that genre peaked and passed more than a decade ago. This one's for nostalgic fans only. Royal Teeth's youthful pop anthems survive on skittering synths and sweetly soaring co-ed harmonies; while a mismatched opener, the Lousiana sextet serves as a fresh alternative to the headliner's dated approach. —Spencer Griffith

Price: $20-25
