Lizzo

Saturday, November 4

When Lizzo released her 2016 EP Coconut Oil, it felt like the entire music world paused and was like “wait — what — who is this?” It’d been a long time since a new artist was able to transcend the underground R&B world to the bleeding edge of pop whilst keeping her personality and lovable character at the forefront of her music. With songs about loving yourself (“Scuse Me”) and a hilarious track about misplacing your phone after a night out with the girls (“Phone”) it was a breath of fresh air to see a #thicc R&B chick bring it as hard as dare I say Beyonce (fight me). With Doja, $18, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com.



Ariel Pink

Saturday, November 10

If you’re not familiar with the psycho-sexiness of Ariel Pink, you’re missing out on life. Ok, maybe not life, but definitely an amazing artist who has some dope tracks and a stellar live show to bring those tracks to life. The artist’s expansive discography includes dreamy tracks like "Life in L.A." off Worn Copy, to the experimental sounds of Thrash & Burn, to the poppy sounds of Pink's most recent album, pom pom, and of course, a fan favorite, Before Today (technically Ariel Pink's haunted Graffiti, but still a classic). Former Current music editor Matt Stieb reviewed the 2015 show saying “Pink is a master of the skit, throwing voicemails and cell phone conversations into his Jeff Koons pop. For "Black Ballerina's strip club scene, Pink, the bikini-drummer and keyboard player Jorge Elbrecht traded off on lines, dropping gems like "Hi Billy, how do you like the number one strip club in L.A?" and "Uhh... I like your areolas baby" before returning to the body of the song.” You can guarantee to see us at this show for sure. $21.75, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary's St., papertigersatx.com.
