BUN B
9 p.m. Club Xclusive. $20 adv., $35 d.o.s.

Bun B may've reached a point in his career where he's just spinning his wheels, tweaking the same old formula with every new song or guest verse. But what do you expect? He's been rapping for 20 years.

That may be a reason not to seek his recent material; it's not, however, one to miss this show. Because few have been more important foundationally to Southern rap than Bun. As half of the Port Arthur, Texas, duo UGK, he became a legend with lyrically complex street rapping that sounds like the natural evolution of Southern soul.

Look for him to cover a retrospective of his UGK work, guest verses ("Go read a book you illiterate son of a bitch and step up yo vocab" is my nomination for the greatest verse in the pantheon of club bangers) and solo stuff. Last time I caught him live, possibly at a previous incarnation of Club Xclusive around 2006, it was the best concert I saw all year.
