Sunday To-Do: Machine Gun Kelly

  • Machine Gun Kelly returns to Juanita's Sunday.

MACHINE GUN KELLY
8 p.m. Juanita's. $20.

Machine Gun Kelly is the handle of Ohio-based rapper Colson Baker. He goes by MGK for those into the whole brevity thing. He recently won the MTVU Woodie of the Year Award, which is a thing. Last year, MGK was the Breaking Woodie winner.

There's a video game that you can play on MGK's website. It's called "Nun Puncher," and the player controls a pixelated version of MGK as he helps nuns feed and clothe the poor. Just kidding, in the video game the nuns are trying to kill MGK and so he has to punch nun after knife-wielding nun (really, though, shouldn't they be wielding nunchucks?).

You might have seen MGK about a year ago, when he played with Tech N9ne at Juanita's. He seems to be on the verge of blowing up big-time, though, so if you want to see him perform in a smaller venue, better take this opportunity.

Also on the bill are Worldplay, T.Jay and Flint Eastwood.
