Live Music Events (Dec. 2 - 8, 2013)


Kanye West with Kendrick Lamar
Thu. Dec. 5 | "Shooters go after Judas," Kendrick Lamar — the modest half of Kanye West's Yeezus tour — spits on his 2012 dominator good kid, m.A.A.d City (Top Dawg). But is the Compton-repping MC issuing warnings or orders? It's just one fascinating aspect of this clash of hip-hop titans. At 7 p.m. at the New Orleans Arena.


Red Fang
Fri. Dec. 6 | Author of hellacious riffs and hilarious videos (watch Prehistoric Dog now), Portland, Ore., pop monster Red Fang threw together third LP Whales and Leeches (Relapse) — and ended up wearing a thorny crown, with help from dream weavers Mike Scheidt (Yob) and Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession, Three Mile Pilot). The Shrine and Indian Handcrafts open at 10 p.m. at Siberia.


Bonnie Raitt
Sat. Dec. 7 | The grande dame of roots music, Bonnie Raitt released Slipstream in 2012, and it earned her the 2013 Best Americana Album Grammy Award. Paul Brady opens at 8 p.m. at Saenger Theatre.
