State of the Artist

The cornerstone artists of upstart record label/sultans of soiree Members Only, State of the Artist have grown noticeably over the past year and change, releasing the more group-focused EP Altered State earlier this year, the follow-up to their interesting but feature-dominated 2010 debut SeattleCaliFragilisticExtraHellaDopeness, and have slowly begun to add depth to their occasionally over-swagged lyricism. Co-headliners for the night Theoretics are a rap-rock group who are known for performing in full suit-and-tie regalia. Show up early to catch the party-fabulous Hi-Life Soundsystem, and find out who brought the flyest shirt-and-tie combo. With Richie Aldente. TODD HAMM
