Young, classically trained violinist threatens to make monocles fall into martini glasses with his incorporation of elements of hip-hop, EDM, country and pop music into his work.

Debt Neglector

New local punk project featuring members of New Mexican Disaster Squad, No Friends and Gatorface celebrate the release of their debut album with a sure-to-be-raucous show.

Memento Mori

With newcomer Ritual, Kulture Shock and deep-cut night Uberbahn, Orlando has a bumper crop of goth nights; but the grandest spectacle of all is still the monthly Memento Mori downtown.

10 p.m. Monday, Aug. 21, at Independent Bar, free

Lil Jon

Here's the devil's bargain: Yes, you can see Lil Jon for only $25 (free for UCF students) and that will be awesome. But, you have to deal with the very real possibility of legions of drunks shouting "WHAT?!" and "YEAH?!" into your ear repeatedly the whole night.

8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22, at CFE Arena, $25
