When Chuck D stopped trying to set the world on fire with every syllable he spit, Boots Riley took that torch and never stopped running. The Coup are legends at blending the high minded with lots of low end. BOBBY ROBERTS

Despite the deep artistry of his beats, Rich Terfry's Buck 65 has always seemed as much a performance artist as a straight-up hiphopper—he's less likely to get a radio hit than a MacArthur "genius" grant. This slight sheen of performance artistry goes into full bloom during Buck 65's live shows, where Terfry rules the stage as carnival barker, impresario, storyteller, and spazz dancer. You will love him, and tonight's whole bill is great, also including the Coup and brilliant LA rapper Busdriver. DAVID SCHMADER
