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 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.
