Devin the Dude, The Coughee Brothaz, Mikey Vegaz 

When: Thu., May 19, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $16-20
The last times I saw Devin the Dude, I was crossing the street to the venue when I first smelled weed. It was pouring out the door, pungent, even in the open air. Inside, the cloud grew thicker. I bellied up for a drink but the bartender was beside herself. "Oh my god," she giggled. "I don't usually smoke pot. I have no idea what I'm doing." Indeed, the hot box had her fully twisted. And I'll be damned if the show wasn't better for it. Everyone just melted into the Houston rapper's slinky, laidback, '90s-inspired drawl. Rather than just a mood, sound, or style, Devin's shows become a state of mind—a collective consciousness that's loose, carefree, and content. And while the weed surely helps, the Dude himself deserves credit. He’s been touring constantly, always hitting Portland, and unlike a lot of emcees, live he’s got his shit screwed down tight. Don’t let the bloodshot eyes fool you—Devin the Dude is a funky old pro. ANDREW R TONRY
