Luke, I Am Your Son

'90s Grand Opening Party • 69 Boyz • hip-hop, bass

We might get in trouble for saying so, but the Miami bass subgenre of hip-hop has some of the hottest dang beats out there. We'll never forget the time Daily Lobo staffer Juliette Torrez played “Me So Horny” in the college newsroom back in 1989. You just can't unhear stuff like that. Flash forward 30 years and other bassy bands from deep in the panhandle are still rocking it. Check out a saucy second generation of that Southern flavor on Friday, Dec. 13 at 8pm when Hush Ultra NightLife hosts a '90s Grand Opening Party featuring the somewhat still notorious 69 Boyz. That's right, you OG cabrones, the folks responsible for the 1994 platinum single “Tootsie Roll” are in town and getting down. Join them at this 21-plus show for only a nominal fee. Telephone or text 269-3301 for more details.

Wearing Only Flowers

Big Head Todd and the Monsters • alternative, blues

After more than 30 years of touring and with an almost cultlike following of mountain-sprung funk fairies gamboling along with them, Big Head Todd and the Monsters are a jam band, which is a very American thing. Their music—distilled by determination, a deep groove and driving around the mountain West and Left Coast in a van called “the Colonel”—is pretty, pretty good
