THIS WEEKEND IN MUSIC: We’ve got hip-hop with Riff Raff, Grieves and Corina Corina

Posted By on Fri, Feb 20, 2015 at 12:02 PM

Tonight, the Red Room Lounge pulls in Corina Corina (a name that will easily cause you to sing this song), a San Francisco-based vocalist who fuses hip-hop and R&B melodies with lyrics about gender equality and loving yourself. The Muzes, a Spokane two-piece featuring Kelley Mak and Jaeda, open the show. The acts stop here as part of a Pacific Northwest Tour. The 21+ show starts at 9 pm.

It’s another round of the Round at the Bartlett. This time musicians Tyler Aker, Cold Mountain Yeti and Ruth Henrickson, poet Devin Devine and visual artist Jesse Pierpoint get together to celebrate local art. The all-ages show is $10 and starts at 8 pm.

John’s Alley in Moscow hosts Simba and the Exceptional Africans at 9:30 pm tonight. The show is $5 and has the potential to last all night long. The band’s story is pretty exceptional. Read that here.

Riff Raff is the dude James Franco’s cornrowed and grilled-out Spring Breakers rapper character was inspired by. He comes to the Knitting Factory tonight for an event that’s sure to be unforgettable. The all-ages show starts at 7 pm and is $22.50. Look for our concert review Saturday. These days, he's gaining weight to feeling great. Check him out below. 

Spokane's Crystalline and Seattle's Vox Mod turn the Baby Bar into an electronic haven Saturday night. As always, the show is free at this venue. 

The Hive brings in yet another group Saturday sure to make you want to dance hard. Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe plays delicious funk tinged with soul. Denson not only sings, he plays saxophone and jazz flute. Brownout opens for the group. The show starts at 9 pm. It's $30 at the door. 

We’ve got Seattle-based hip-hopper Grieves back in town. Last year he sold out the Bartlett, so you’ll need to get down there early for a good spot. The all-ages show starts at 8 pm and is $20 the day of.
