Kooley High, Kourvoisier, OxyXmoron

When: Fri., Oct. 4, 10 p.m. 2013

Eked out under the quiet cover of Bandcamp late last year, The Woods—the debut LP from South Carolina crew OXYxMORON—is an 80-minute hip-hop rejuvenation. Guileless and kind, these guys rap about their grandmothers and their gods, ecstatically addressing the woes and wonder of their real lives rather than the ecstasy they take in some imagined alternative universe. These are the soul-sampling, sweet-faced Carolina acolytes to the Little Brother lineage, even if surprisingly few have noticed. They open the bill with kindred realism traffickers Kooley High and hard-edged Durham emcee Kourvioisier. —Grayson Currin
