Cardigan Records Three Year Anniversary Show: Professor Toon, Greaver, Youth League, Bear Girl, Laww & Bigg, HundredftFaces (Back Room)

When: Sat., July 9, 7:30 p.m. 2016

The Durham-based Cardigan Records has always had a broad approach to building its roster. That spirit shines tonight as Bull City rapper Professor Toon shares the stage with the prog-leaning emo band Greaver. But even despite their disparate aesthetics, Toon’s blend of relatable rhymes and beats that find a middle ground between old-school boom bap and chart-topping hooks forms a surprising complement to Greaver’s narrative-driven songwriting and bombastic arrangements. Both deliver their songs earnestly, with a gift for drawing high drama from everyday existence. They’ll be joined by the Wilmington’s Youth League, Atlanta’s Bear Girl, Durham’s Laww x Bigg, and Chapel Hill’s HundredftFaces. —Bryan C. Reed
