Sockets Records Showcase – Black Cat 1.22

DC-based label Sockets Records is putting on a showcase show this Friday night, January 22 at the Black Cat. The bands playing are The Cornel West Theory, HUME, Imperial China, Buildings, and Big Gold Belt.

Sockets will be celebrating it’s 5-year anniversary. Big shouts to label head Sean Peoples for his hard work and support of great local music.  Imperial China is celebrating the release of it’s record Phosphenes. The Cornel West Theory is especially unique act, providing artistic hip-hop. DC hip-hop is doing big things with the likes of Wale, but Theory takes an interesting approach that I’m looking forward to seeing live.

Some additional coverage on Sean and Sockets here at Onion AV Club DC and BrightestYoungThings. Much thanks to Ryan Wakeman for the heads up and info.
