J.Leshelle/Dame B./Esther Fitz/BJones/CallMeChrisG/Mikal Callow/Tone Sinatra

Tonight's showcase at the Grog shop overflows with some of the city's most promising young talent in hip-hop and R&B tonight. An Ohio Hip-hop award nominee conjuring comparisons to late '90s-era R&B who hit her mark with a recent reprise of Drake's "Controlla," homegrown singer J.Leshelle headlines, and the bill unfolds with BJones, who channels a Trey Songz vibe over trap and piano trills. Esther Fitz's deft, jazzy vocal range that envelopes pop and soul beats. Rapper CallMeChrisG brings a melodic, auto-tune-soaked texture that pairs nicely with the trap twistings of Dame.B, juxtaposed cooly with the bouncy synths of Mikal Callow. Rounding off the lineup is Tone Sinatra, whose stand-out track, "Fired Up," shakes with a simmering, off-kilter, head-nod-inducing flow over industrial production. For this fresh sampling of Cleveland's underground hype, the Grog is the spot to be. (Lawrence Neil)
