Freebass 808, Mosadi Music, The Beast, Swaso

When: Thu., June 17, 9:45 p.m. 2010

Don't make the same mistake as Broad Street Cafe and label this show Rock vs. Hip-Hop. It's less competition and more a convergence of several bubbling strains in the Triangle music scene. SWASO's "Sugarlicious" is both as flirtatious and rocketing as Freebass 808's new Jovi Rockwell-assisted "Rewind," while Mosadi Music's histrionic sensibilities are just as ceremonious as The Beast's plays on locution and location. Freebass 808's Suede Heron might be the vet who stands out from his Camp Lo days, but SWASO frontman Hugh Swaso is a beloved local showman who'll be expected to set the tone and raise energy of every other bandleader on the bill—Heron, Mosadi's Shirlette Ammons and The Beast's Pierce Freelon. —Eric Tullis
