Portland metal four-piece Red Fang unleash havoc at Underground Arts tonight. With the huge success of their full length Whales and Leeches, Red Fang toured extensively this year, bringing their heavy, badass brand of music around the country and world. Whales and Leeches was recently named one of SPIN Magazines 20 Best Metal Albums of 2013, and this show is one not to miss. Find tickets and more info here. Watch “Blood Like Cream” below.

West Coast rap pioneers Blackalicious come to World Café Live tonight. The duo – comprised of Gift of Gab, aka Tim Parker, and DJ/producer Chief Xcel – are notorious for their tongue-twisting rhymes and classic old school beats. Reminiscent of hip-hop groups like The Pharcyde, Blackalicious keep old school alive with thoughtful lyricism. Get tickets and more information on the event here. Watch “Make You Feel That Way” below.
