Over disjointed, purple-hazed beats, Deniro Farrar reps the everyday with style normally reserved for 36-chain rap. Based out of North Carolina, Farrar leads the self-described Cult Rap movement, which he explained to Complex as “speak[ing] to a listener’s emotion, less to flamboyant activity and materialistic shit.” After three Dat Piff-friendly mixtapes, Farrar signed to Vice Records for his 2013 release The Patriarch.

On the strength of his early mixtapes, 19-year-old Denzel Curry joined SpaceGhostPurpp’s Raider Klan, an appropriate home for Curry’s stoned Florida delivery. On “Bow Down,” the pair takes on all-comers: “What’s beef to a slaughterhouse?” $15, 8:30pm, The White Rabbit, 241o N St. Mary’s, (210) 737-2221 —Matt Stieb

Founded in 1972 by Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock, the Lubbock country-rockers' honky-tonk tunes capture the flatland accents of North Texas. Sidenote: You may recognize singer Jimmie Dale Gilmore for his performance in the Cohen Brothers' '98 cult classic The Big Lebowski as Smokey, the long-haired, "fragile" pacifist threatened at gunpoint by Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) during a bowling game. $23-$35, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N Saint Mary's, 210-812-4355 —Matt Stieb
