YING YANG TWINS
9 p.m., the Village. $15 adv./$17 d.o.s.

The Ying Yang Twins were initially going to call their last album “2 Live Crew,” as an ode to the controversial '80s bootie rappers. That would've brought to the fore the obvious. Over the course of five albums in seven years, the Atlanta duo has mined the Crew's sex and bass formula deep, paying special attention to the posterior, bouncing. See, for instance, “1st Booty on Duty,” “Jigglin',” “Salt Shaker” and just plain “Shake.” The group's biggest hit, however, took a subtler approach. Produced by longtime associate Mr. Collipark, “Wait (The Whisper Song)” found D-Roc and Kaine getting dirty (“wait till you see my ****” is the chorus) in hushed voices over a skeletal beat. Now split from Collipark, the Twins have returned to the basics, with playful, bass-heavy strip club anthems like their new single “Freak.” If early concert reports hold true, they'll work through all their hits and mix in familiar samples from the likes of “Black Betty” and “Maneater.” Likely, there will be booties jiggling.

Local acts Swintown, Lil Speedie, Arkatext, Tho'd Studios, Wyld-N-Out and DJ Discipline support.
