JAZZ VS. HIP-HOP V: 'THE BLACK OUT'
9 p.m. Twelve Modern Lounge. $10-$15.

The "Jazz vs. Hip-Hop" series continues with a fifth installment, featuring trumpeter Rodney Block & The Real Music Lovers (Oliver "OT" Thomas on bass, Sam Carroll on keys and drummer Michael Chandler) playing live onstage with MC and producer Kwestion, of Little Rock collective LabRatz, and D-Dirt a.k.a. Lil Rock Obama, founder of the label Tho'd Studios Ent. (and of the "Hottest in the Rock" rap battle series at Cornerstone Pub & Grill).

There'll be individual and collaborative performances from everybody.

Block is fresh off of a solo album with last month's "Steel," and Tho'd released the mixtape "Who Tho'd Vol. 3: End Of The World Edition" a few weeks back, boasting a ton of Arkansas talent, including Aye Tell Em JT, Arkansas Bo, Yung 2, Ball Jones and many more. Kwestion's released the "Greater than Great: 2nd Quarter" mixtape this year, along with "Please Turn it the Phuck Up," 19 tracks showcasing his production chops.
