This Rahway, NJ native and Howard University alum has been nominated in both 2010 and 2011 for a GRAMMY Award in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance category and continues to blaze trails unheard of from an independent artist. In 2011 his studio album, "Mister Nice Guy", debuted in the top 5 on the iTunes R&B/Soul Charts. Recently Eric released a collaboration album "B-Sides, Features and Heartaches" as a thank you album to his fans. The album represents 10 years of collaboration with some of his favorite independent artists in the soul movement. Eric is set to release his 10th studio album in the fall of 2014. "Eric Roberson.

The Internet @ The Howard Theatre
$23 / $28
THE INTERNET began as two people – Syd and Matt. Syd taught herself how to record, engineer, and produce at age 15. She also sings, imbuing every song with a sultry, mellifluous, quiet power. Matt produces and plays synths. She’s now 23; he’s now 26. Like all post-modern relationships, the duo initially met on Myspace in 2008, only to meet in-person three years later. THE INTERNET have released two albums previously – 2011’s Purple Naked Ladies, and 2012’s Feel Good. THE INTERNET branched off from the Odd Future collective and started their own band in 2011. Syd had been writing music since she was small; she put this on hold to become OF’s DJ and producer, and picked her songs back up in 2011 to make her first full-length album with Matt. When they play live, THE INTERNET is a band – a six-person outfit whose youngest member is 17. They began playing as a full-band in order to tour behind Feel Good, and the band members all contributed their talents to THE INTERNET’s forthcoming album.
