Hip Hop Smackdown 5! Feat. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

Sat., May 26, 8 p.m.

There is only one place to be if you’re looking for a one-stop, immersive retro hip-hop extravaganza, and that’s Hip Hop Smackdown 5. Here to kick it old school are a slew of beat and rhyme masterminds that paved the way for the hip-hop stars of today. Take “Ruffneck” rapper MC Lyte, for example — who made history as the first solo female rapper to release a full-length album in 1988. “The Human Beatbox” Doug E. Fresh is also on the bill, alongside one of the first rappers to earn a Grammy award, Kool Moe Dee. And of course, where would hip-hop be without headliners, the legendary Bone Thugs-N-Harmony? $37.50+

Uhh Yeah Dude The Podcast-Live!

Sat., May 26, 8 p.m.

Long before the first episode of the Uhh Yeah Dude podcast aired in 2006, friends Seth Romatelli and Jonathan Larroquette have been shooting the shit. Described as “a weekly roundup of America through the eyes of two American-Americans,” the Uhh Yeah Dude bros leave politics and current events to the pros. From pop culture, quirky scientific findings, and Celine Dion, the comedic meanderings of Romatelli and Larroquette are perfect for ADD-addled brains, and for anyone looking for a gut-busting escape from the gloom and doom of Trump’s America. $28
