Aer, RDGLDGRN, New Beat Fund 

When: Thu., Feb. 20, 7 p.m. 2014
RDGLDGRN's recent single “Lootin’ in London” includes lyrics about Bad Brains and the D.C. punk scene (the band is from an outer D.C. suburb) rapped over a delightfully fuzzy guitar riff. Combining punk and rap is hardly novel, even on this scene (Minneapolis punk-rap artist P.O.S. is a Warped veteran), but RDGLDGRN colors its mix with bits of go-go, ska, and reggae, then siphons that concoction into a sleek and polished pop-rock sound. —Leor Galil, 2013
