THO'D ENTERTAINMENT
11:30 p.m., Downtown Music. $5.

 Of all the local rap cliques, few if any have been as active as long as Tho'd Ent. Since 2000, the crew's released a slew of mixtapes, selling, they say, more than 10,000 units independently. On Friday, the extended family gathers to celebrate the release of “Who Tho'd 2,” a compilation featuring singles from each of Tho'd's artists. That includes Cat Daddy, Goon Squad, DolaMike, Stee-Feezy, D-Dirt, BlackSand, Big P, PlayaLaid and Tho'd Up Texas (which, I suppose works thematically, but really?). All will be on-hand for the CD release. Expect a lot of group call and response: “Who Tho'd?! We Tho'd!!” (“tho'd,” by the way, is a variation on “throwed,” slang for drunk or high or otherwise lifted). Expect, too, street-rap-typical lyrics covering topics like money, crime, cars, clothes and gold-digging women. Among the crew, Cat Daddy, a short, broad-shouldered woman with close-cropped hair and many tattoos, stands out in particular. And not just because she's the lone woman in Tho'd. When she raps, with what sounds like the beginning of a smoker's rasp, she often sounds like she's making confession. It's as arresting as it is heartfelt live.
