✔️ = Critic's Pick

✔️ 21 Savage/Youngboy Never Broke Again FADER magazine’s October 2015 cover boy arrives to headline The Ritz in Ybor City, and the deeply respected rapper who rode sinister beats and a rough life on Atlanta streets to infamy still has a lot to prove after a disastrous performance at last year’s NBA All-Star game. Thankfully, Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph — aka 21 Savage — is in prime position to do that. “Rockstar,” a new single from goofy New York rapper Post Malone, spotlights Mr. Savage and spent a nice chunk of time atop Billboard’s Hot 100. Louisiana trap star Youngboy Never Broke Again (who’s on the cover of the latest FADER mag) opens the show. (The Ritz, Ybor City) INFO

Ol’ Dirty Sundays w/DJ A-Train/DJ Casper/DJ Fader Bucs fans (and only the real ones are left these days), don’t worry, because this is not a set from the team’s famed fullback Mike Alstott. It is, however, an appearance from DJ A-Train, a Gainesville-reared music nerd who fell in love with DJ-ing on an immersive trip to Tokyo. He’s since outgrown his bedroom (and his sister’s turntables upon which he fIrst spun records) en route to fIlling clubs of every size with his tastes, which range from bebop, Brubeck, funk, and soul to all things hip-hop. Free show, per usual, and your last chance to party over the Thanksgiving weekend. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO
