Thursday To-Do: Maxximum Impact

MAXXIMUM IMPACT
9:30 p.m., Revolution. $5-$8.

Maxx is back — that's 20-year-old rapper Max Farrell — with his regular concert series. And while seeing the young rapper and his super-tight live band Apples and Spades is always a worthwhile way to spend your evening, Thursday's a must-attend for local hip-hop heads because of the reemergence of Zii, one of the strongest talents to come out of the local hip-hop boom circa 2006. A member of the celebrated, but lately fairly quiet Dat Heat crew, Zii (short for Ziibra) raps with a speed and dexterity that recalls Eminem, has a catchphrase (“Waca Waca Waca!”) and usually wilds out during his live show. For the last several years, the rapper's hopped around the country, nearly landing on VH1's “I Love New York” and signing a major label deal. But now he's back, putting the finishing touches on “Zii Dimensional,” his debut full-length. Stream or download a preview track, “On My Grind,” on Rock Candy, www.arktimes.com. St. Louis' Nite Owl fills out the bill. There'll be card games for those who bore easily, too
