Sophistafunk, Annie in the Water

When: Fri., Dec. 2, 9 p.m. 2016

Hailing from Syracuse, N.Y., Sophistafunk keep things classy and positive at all times. Jack Brown, the band’s MC, delivers socially conscious rhymes over smooth-as-silk organs and punchy hip-hop beats. For example, on their 2013 cut, “Bruce Lee,” Brown raps, “Nothing wrong with being civil and disobedient” and “I’d rather question all authority / And even act disorderly.” The band’s mix of early-era hip-hop sounds and sociopolitical commentary could lead to as much conversation as booty shaking. Check out Sophistafunk on Friday, December 2, at Nectar’s in Burlington with Annie in the Water.

Price: $10
