The Dean's List, KO Kid, Styles&Complete

When: Mon., Feb. 20, 9 p.m. 2012

DJ Mendoza, mixer Mik Beats and rapper Sonny Shotz were art students in Boston when they hooked up to form the Dean's List in 2009. After debuting with their Undeclared mixtape, the Boston trio gained an underground following with playful, pop-sampling hip-hop. On "I'll Be Ok," Shotz raps, "I never studied but I ain't about to fail" over laid-back synths. Chapel Hill's K.O. Kid steers his rhymes over indie samples provided by DJ Ladro, like a stouter Chiddy Bang. Charlotte dubsteppers Styles&Complete open. —Ashleigh Phillips

Price: $12-15
