All Killer No Filler

Editorial Review

Washington's newest crop of rap hopefuls and sonic craftsmen don't color within the lines, and party people stand to benefit. The staff of the Couch Sessions lifestyle and music blog are of the same ethos that says MCs and DJs should be able to get down to hip-hop, go-go, or synthed-out electro beats without the constraining allegiances to scenes. As a commitment to this vision, they're kicking off the monthly All Killer No Filler party at Liv tonight. Young female firebrand RA The MC headlines with a full band set. Cam Jus, Trevor Martin and Starks & Nacey of Nouveau Riche keep the dance floor on crazed mode.
