Harrypalooza Vol. 5
It used to be a birthday party, but the vibe’s outgrown the need to justify debauchery and decadence with dates and fuzzy memories. Now it happens, ya know, whenever it comes together. Which happens to be this week. Expect heat from Mr. 3, of course, performing with his frequent partner in crime, Saskatchewan’s Chandler Strang. Plus there’s City Tucker, Grant, Ted Massena and Body//Talk’s Vsn Qst to swerve things out a little further. The Talk Yo Shit crowd is known for surprise collaborations springing from the wild-notioned freak-flag crowd it draws, so come ready to be flung into their depraved whimsy. Read more.

Juicy J
"It's very personal," Juicy J says of Pure THC: The Hustle Continues. "It talks about where I came from and where I am now, how long it took me to get where I am. It's a lot of different things. I'm talking about a lot of things. I'm talking about what me and Three 6 Mafia went through when we were just out in the streets hustling, trying to get on. So it's a very personal album. I've definitely got some kicking stuff in there, too, because my life is a party. But it's still a business, too, at the same time. I kick it when I kick it, but I definitely take care of business. I make sure everything is tight: My finances are tight, my family is tight, my friends are perfect." Read our interview with Juicy J.
8 p.m. Friday, June 26, at Venue 578, $30-$125

Kool Keith
