Peter's Room at the Roseland (map) Northwest
Fri., May 9, 8 p.m. 2014 All Ages

Whether Portland has a hiphop problem or not, Houston's Devin the Dude hasn't judged. Shit, other than his current tourmate Cool Nutz, it'd be hard to find a rapper who's performed here more. Perhaps that's hyperbole, but this isn't: Devin the Dude has kept Grumptown on his radar for a long time and delivered repeatedly, his smoked-out shows bumping smoothly like Cadillac trunks on a Saturday. Which brings me to this hopefully over-cautious conundrum: What has the Roseland learned in the last few months? We all remember what happened to Action Bronson when he smoked onstage there (it got heated). Devin the Dude's shows are as weed-filled as any, so let's hope cooler heads prevail. Because I'm doing my best to appreciate the Roseland—and its ground-floor stage, Peter's Room—as the preeminent home for out-of-town rappers visiting Portland. Let's hope they don't take it for granted. Certainly, after all this time, Devin deserves our best. ANDREW R. TONRY
