Sat. Sept. 12 | Odd Futurist Earl Sweatshirt talks his way through sophomore LP I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside (Tan Cressida) like a nonchalant savant: Rhymes that come across as improvs reveal themselves to be densely constructed soliloquies over come-and-go self-productions. NxWorries and Remy Banks open at 10 p.m. at Republic.
Sat. Sept. 12 | Oh, Diarrhea Planet — so hard to take seriously, so easy to love. Get past the name and there's a no-nonsense pop/punk band waiting to be discovered: 2013's I'm Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams (Infinity Cat) is Blink 182 without the alternative sweetener, Weezer without the self-conscious fade. Video Age and Gland open at 10 p.m. at Gasa Gasa.
