Tonight in live music; Riff Raff, Soul Fest with Brian McKnight and more

Dweezil honors pops, too.

Riff Raff w/Million Dolla Banks Jody Highroller is not a figment of your imagination. The 34 year old rapper born Horst Simco and better known as Riff Raff is infamous for glitzy, goofy songs like “Dolce & Gabbana” and “Tip Toe Wing In My Jawwwdinz,” and he’s taking it to another level this year with the release of a new film, The Peach Panther, which looks to be an action/comedy meant to companion his 2016 album of the same name.
