Saturday To-Do: G-Eazy

9 p.m., Revolution. $7.

The big picture on G-Eazy's MySpace page was shot last month at Verizon Arena, when he was the first performer on Lil Wayne's packed bill. That tour association might be the biggest thing G-Eazy has going for him in his bio. But maybe not for long. Raised in the Bay Area and currently enrolled at Loyola in New Orleans, he sounds like Drake rapping over Cool Kids-style Rick Rubin rip-off beats, with a lil' bit of West Coast levity on top for good measure. In other words, he's catchy as hell and bound to be even more so with a live band backing him. At least in pictures, he looks a lot like Maxx, our own young, great white rap hope — skinny and awkward. But here's betting he's got a way with this 18 and older crowd. And that 607 out-raps him in the opening spot. DJ Shawn Lee spins, too.
