The Skinny: Husband and wife, Brent Brehony and Crista Carroll have been Circle 13 for three years, since Brent asked Crista to lay down some hooks for a solo project, and the two realized they were better together. They co-wrote 13 songs for their debut Come Feel This, a distinctive hip-hop album whose socially conscious lyrics should both inspire audiences and fill a void in S.B.’s hip-hop scene. Inspired by nature and seeking to be the voice for the voiceless, they’re already at work on a second CD and a children’s music project. Taking a stand on everything from destructive Hollywood lifestyles to the bald eagle’s brush with extinction, Circle 13’s “got enough words to piss off First Moms,” but wraps it all in optimistic vibes.

Next Gig: Tuesday, July 17, 10 p.m., at the Wildcat’s Locals Night.
