The Ten Best Shows in St. Louis This Weekend: January 17 to 19

Saturday (January 18):

Nipsey Hussle
w/ Erk Tha Jerk, Tef Poe, MARKOE, Step Or Get Left, Allen Gates
@ Pop's Nightclub
7 pm. / $20-$27
Nipsey Hussle is all LA, his latest mixtape dedicated to the boulevard where he grew up, Crenshaw. He's a voice of the people of South LA, with influences including N.W.A., Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre -- you know Nipsey is definitely delivering some of that sweet, classic West coast rap. (Tara Mahadevan)

The Bump & Hustle No. 19
w/ Jone$, Leroy, MAKossa, Nappy DJ Needles, Hal Greens
@ Blank Space
9 p.m. | $5
This monthly installment of the B&H features special guests Jone$ and Leroy from Memphis alongside the regular cast of resident DJs. The artists behind the help schlep strictly 45s all night long in the vein of funk, soul, boogie, disco, reggae, hip-hop, psychedelic, latin and more. (MS)

Civil Twilight
w/ Logos
@ Old Rock House
8 p.m. | $12
This quartet hails from South Africa and is often compared to the Police. You may recognize this song from one of the many TV shows it was featured on, including its use as intro music for Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson. Smell that? (DH)

w/ Burn/Ward, Maximum Effort, Violations
@ Blank Space
9 p.m. | $6
Hear some hardcore here: Rash (from Chicago) and Burn/Ward (from Richmond). Locals Violations and Maximum Effort open -- catch the latter while you can, as they don't get to play out often. (MS)

Without MF Order
w/ Dirty Soap, Filfthy Jill & the Muscles, Mad World, Mother Meat, A Death and a Promise
@ Just Bill's
7 p.m. | $5
Come for the spectacle that is Without Motherfucking Order (wherein the band's ex-pro-wrestling frontman harms himself for your amusement), stay for the rare opportunity to catch the pummeling hardcore of A Death and A Promise. All at Just Bill's, in beautiful downtown Overland! (DH)

Random Rab
w/ Andreilien, Spankalicious, Pleasure v Filibusta
@ 2720 Cherokee
8 p.m. | $18/$20
Random Rab is one of those rare DJs who is also a multi-instrumentalist, having toured with the likes of Bassnectar, Shpongle and Beats Antique. (DH)

For more options on Saturday, consider checking out the Magnolia Summer album release at Off Broadway, Charlie Wilson at the Fox or Wussy at Plush. Man Man also performs at Off Broadway on Sunday.
