Editors' pick

D.C. Emerging Artists Super Sampler

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Local scene-making site Brightest Young Things recently found itself at the center of a plagiarism storm - its managing editor resigned after being accused of copying material from other Web sites - but the site's promoters are still organizing hip events that few competitors can match. Its D.C. Emerging Artists Super Sampler brings a dozen buzz-worthy locals to the Hamilton on the same night. It's not all hipster fodder; the show will also feature engaging female rapper Ra the MC, tuneful garage rockers Shark Week, glossy Balearic electropop group Black Hills, atmospheric post-rock band Drop Electric and synth-driven hip-hop duo Beyond Modern.
