Pants Velour hails from New York City, and brings with them a blend of hip hop, rock, pop, and soul. It’s a style that the Washington City Paper calls “party-ready hip hop,” and that has been likened to the Beastie Boys, The Roots, and the Black Eyed Peas. Earlier this year at the New Music Seminar in New York, they landed a spot on the conference’s “Top 100 Artists on the Verge” list. Pants Velour rocked the Black Cat (and us!) at our DCLISC event.
