Social House are exactly the guys you want around when your local basketball team takes an L.
Performing Friday night (Nov. 2) at the Billboard Lounge in Brooklyn's Barclays Center, where the hometown Nets had just fallen to the Rockets 119–111, the duo of Michael "Mikey" Foster and Charles "Scootie" Anderson were all smiles and bubbly energy. They make music for two scenarios: good times and bad times you want to turn good.
The highlight of the 20-minute set was naturally “Magic in the Hamptons,” the mojito-sweet pop-rap summer jam that put Social House on the map earlier this year. Neither Mikey nor Scootie had been to the Hamptons when they wrote the infectious tune, and that says a lot about these Pittsburgh natives. Sure, they now live in L.A., where they forged their partnership in a house full of other songwriter-producers breaking into the industry, but Social House’s vibe is that of two regular guys who won’t pretend they’re not living the dream.
