INDIE/HIP-HOP | The Gunpoets 

In a New York town known mostly for its collection of colleges and canyons, there is a rapidly rising band that's changing the musical landscape on its way up. Ithaca's The Gunpoets is a seven-piece hip-hop set that is redefining the underground rap sound. The group mixes elements of pop, rock, funk, and soul, with the intelligent lyricism reminiscent of hip-hop's golden age. The band has shared stages, as well as its alternative approach to rap, with such internationally known acts as Arrested Development and Talib Kweli.

The Gunpoets perform Friday, June 28, 8:30 p.m. at The Club at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $10-$15.
