Artist: L.E.S. Crew Song: "Nice Like That"
"Nice Like That" takes me all over the West Coast, from the smoothest cats of the G-funk era to the silly-but-socially minded Jurassic 5. (Remember when Thom Yorke was name-dropping those guys?) And while nobody's mistaking Columbus for Long Beach, the L.E.S. Crew — that's Living Energy System — do a convincing approximation of the California sound. L.E.S. is one of several acts (Sinatra, Searius Add, The Newsense, D. Rob) that will take part in the hip-hop showcase that is closing down tomorrow's Agora event at Junctionview Studios.
Besides the vast selection of visual art, Agora has become ground zero for live music in Columbus this weekend; check the full schedule here.
