Kidz in the Hall.

8 p.m., Revolution, $10.

If you're not familiar with 88-Keys, it's okay. He was part of the massive mid-'00s exodus of producers that followed Kanye (88's shopping buddy) from the mixing board to the microphones. Not that he had any exceptional need to add an emcee credit to his repertoire; he has a string of impressive production credits, using his piano skills to fashion backing tracks for Musiq Soulchild, Macy Gray and, more so than anyone else, Mos Def. Nevertheless, he specializes in self-deprecating, radio-ready tracks with no shortage of piano accompaniment. Think Talib Kweli by way of Ben Folds and you're getting there. He's joined by buzzy skater-rap duo Kidz in the Hall, Atlanta's trouble-making Donnis, and the eccentric Nick Catchdubs and Timberland-produced Izza Kizza.
