XO and XIB

Please note: This event has already occurred.
The condo boom on U Street may have contributed to the demise of hip-hop club State of the Union and the weekly go-go concerts at the Reeves Center, but both genres of music have migrated to new rooms down the block. When XO, the underrated Washington rapper who honed his smooth delivery in the U Street open-mike scene of yore, performs with bounce beat go-go band XIB at Pure, it'll serve as a reminder of Black Broadway's not-so-distant musical past - and hopefully a glimpse into its future, too.
