This is how it works…
Three touring acts.
Three local acts.
Three stages set up around the perimeter of the room.
Each act does one song per round, before passing it on to the next act in the circle.
The idea is to eradicate the dead air and general lameness of rap shows, and inject some fun into things. Something new happens every three minutes. The Rap Round Robin started as an annual Baltimore tradition, and now we’re taking it across North America.
The touring roster this year is…

Nearly four years to the day from Sweet Leda’s release of their first LP Need The Music, Sweet Leda is thrilled to share their latest birth, a new full-length album, Let It In. Where Need The Music was key in the development of the band’s sound in its earlier years, Let It In captures the live and raw essence of what can only come from years of steady gigs, blood, sweat, and a few tears. To capture this essence, the band went old school on its own ass and tracked everything live. The whole band recorded all together in one room, tracking analog to 2” tape. What came out of the process is an intimate, in-your-face, edgy sound that exemplifies Sweet Leda live, at their best. (Full disclosure, there were a few overdubs; a few vocal harmonies, a few guitar parts, and for good measure, the band brought Ron Holloway in for a couple tracks!) At the helm are Producer Stephen Joseph Antonelli of Song Builder Studios (who also produced Need The Music), and Engineer/Mixer IRKO (Jay-Z, J Lo, Kanye West, Talib Kweli, Live). Join Sweet Leda along with Philly/NJ-based friends Stolen Rhodes on Saturday March 21st, at The Metropolitan in Annapolis as we celebrate the release of LET IT IN!
