The Cool Kids are definitely one of those acts that inspired a lot of the modern sound being permeated on rap airwaves. In the mid-2000s, members Sir Michael Rocks and Chuck Inglish blazed an innovative retro-rap aesthetic that can now be seen in artists as diverse as Chance the Rapper and Joey BadA$$. This will be the Illinois duo’s first show in the market in 4+ years after reuniting late last year. Not to be outdone, both River Tiber (the Toronto native who has garnered rave reviews from Pitchfork) and Colorado’s own The Reminders (they’ve shared the stage with the likes of Snoop Dogg and KRS-One) are Sound Select acts worthy of your attention on a “I saw them before they broke big” level. Not familiar?
