Get familiar with these names quick: Le Vice, Tin and Momoko. Each act — two from New York and one local band — are finalists for Tiger Beer and Imprint.City’s Uncaged Nights, an online music competition searching for the next rising talent. Also partnering up with online publication Hypebeast, Uncaged Nights made a casting call for the unsung creatives making waves in a saturated music industry.
The final three face-off as openers to LA’s Dumbfoundead at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall. Though these artists are competing for a spot on 88Rising‘s upcoming 88Degrees & Rising tour (joining their primarily rap roster of Rich Brian, Keith Ape, Higher Brothers and more), not one sounds like the other: Momoko follows a poppy EDM sound; duo Le Vice self-categorizes as ‘urban alternative’; Brooklyn’s Tin carries a neo-R&B vibe a la Frank Ocean.
The performances will be recorded and viewed by a panel of judges. In addition to the 88Rising tour, the selected winner will be flown out to Seoul, Korea in the fall to perform at Tiger Beer’s The Uncaged Live music festival.
