Das Racist, Danny Brown, Despot 

When: Tue., Oct. 4, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $15-17

Serious joke rappers Das Racist are like the Beastie Boys in their knucklehead phase and latter-day enlightened phase all at once—only smarter, more well-read and carrying a chip on their shoulder. Live, they're a mess of performance art, riffs on race, shout-outs to hallucinogens and even some rapping. "Michael Jackson," a club banger off their latest, Relax, will have you genuinely throwing elbows, while "Booty in the Air" is the one you'll ironically wild-out to. Openers are Despot, a live-wire Queens MC, and Danny Brown, the best thing to happen to Internet rap in quite some time. —Brandon Soderberg
