Dope Operatic: Midaz the Beast
This prolific local rapper (who had one of our favorite records last year) has been dropping new tracks weekly in the spirit of Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Fridays since the year started, and this week’s a rare chance to see him perform them live.
10 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25, at the Peacock Room, $5

The Welzeins
We featured this local duo last month on Off the Avenue for good reason: They rip. Ride out Will’s Pub’s anniversary month with their surfy “Zhark Attack.”
9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 26, at Will’s Pub, $7

The Professional Rapper Tour featuring Lil Dicky
Inspired by humble rappers like Drake, rapper-comedian Lil Dicky is still super normy despite the fact that his viral release “Ex-Boyfriend” garnered him 6 million views and overnight celebrity in 2013.
8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, at the Social, $15-$95

Touring on their new 7-inch, Silo, and last year’s debut full-length, Youth, Citizen does emo with edgier drama than local heroes You Blew It!, who joins them on the Warped Tour vet’s national tour.

Enjoy folk punk from Nüd Dood and Clem McGillicutty and the Burnouts, plus noted local ska band Jahnopa, while attendees come dressed for the premature costume contest, vying for that $10 bar tab prize.
7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 29, at Uncle Lou’s Entertainment Hall, $3

You Me at Six
British rockers You Me at Six released Cavalier Youth, produced by Neal Avron (Say Anything, Fall Out Boy), earlier this year after generating a lot of buzz about its mystery recording location. (Secret’s out: It was L.A.)
