Stapled to a signpost or taped to a window, Ron Liberti‘s art has long had a finger on the pulse of local music. The relevancy is no easy get given the dearth of screen-printers and graphic design apps. Liberti’s work is a step apart, because of talent, sure, but also years of playing and participating in local music. Off and on since 1991, his band Pipe has been palpable force. Destroying stages (sometimes literally) with their no holds barred punk, Pipe is a fury of howling riffs, blustering drums and front man histrionics.
Sure, Liberti and his crew have things figured out, but can this artist ans showstopper handle our five questions? See for yourself after the jump.
Rapper, producer, all around whiz Toon is here to make you move. This hip-hop head with a love for electro-pop sounds discovered his love of music while studying at Durham’s School of the Arts. He’s stuck around Durham, honing his skills and often performing alongside his friend and fellow artist The Real Laww. His new album, L.D.O.C. is available now at ProfessorToon.
With a clever flow and a crafty sense of humor, Toon’s music is liable to make you smile, but can he answer our five questions? See for yourself after the jump.

Christopher Bell‘s band requires more focus and discipline than the average rock show, at least the members are nice about it… Oh right, he’s the only one. With an electric cello, a keyboard, a suitcase for percussion and a knack for beat boxing and pedal effects, Bell’s one-man band is its own special exercise in performance and the reaches of pop.
Bell can juggle rhythms and keep up the pace, but can this mad musician handle five hard hitting questions? See for yourself after the jump!
If “indie pop half greek harmony” doesn’t mean anything to you, then you’re missing out on the wild sounds of Beloved Binge aka Rob Beloved and Eleni Binge. These two tackle drums and guitar with energetic arrangements and a delightful sense of play. This month, they release Pockets, a brand new record to treat your ears.
So sure, these two have their acts together, but can they handle our five questions? See for yourself after the jump!
