Tonight's To-dos

If you’ve looked outside your downtown office building window in the past hour, then you’ve noticed the riverfront is filling up fast. Thousands are expected to attend the annual Juneteenth celebration held at the Riverfest Amphitheater tonight. The Power 92.3 FM-sponsored event will showcase some rising rap talents, including ATL’s Da Shop Boyz, Mims, Rasheeda, T-Pain and the Houston headliner Devin the Dude (above). Look for North Little Rock rap diva XXzotic. A stunner, she’ll perform tonight. $15.

 

At White Water Tavern, the Salty Dogs will throw a CD release party to debut their new album, “Autoharpoon,” a solid, twelve-song collection of honky-tonk, Western swing and Southern gospel. While you’re sure to get a big helping of the new album, they’ll likely serve up some cover songs, too. 9 p.m. $5.

 

Skinny, stringy-haired Alan Disaster fronts local punk rock band Smoke Up Johnny. They’ll play Juanita’s tonight along with San Antokyo and Big Boots. 9:30 p.m. $5.

        Since last fall, Memphis rap duo Lord Treadwell and Maurice Eloise XIII have been introducing common folks to what they're calling “aristocrunk.” Donning 18th-century wigs and ruffled attire, Lord T (Cameron Mann) and Eloise (Robert Anthony) spit tongue-in-cheek lyrics about popping “Pillz” and wearing “Million Dollar Boots.” Mann, who was called the “whitest of white-boy rappers” while enrolled at Tulane University, runs Memphis recording studio Young Avenue Sound, serving artists such as Yo Gotti, Ying Yang Twins, 8Ball & MJG and Al Kapone.
