Live Tonight: Lures, Big Freedia, Lupe Fiasco

Surfer vibes join with the sounds of Seattle rock to create Lures, a trio of 20-somethings who will make you want to surf the rain-filled streets. The group just released Vacant, a two-track preview for its upcoming LP, to be released in January. Joining the show is Bigfoot Wallace & His Wicked Sons, a dirty gospel-rock group. Heavy guitar and organs will get you stomping your feet and joining the music-making. With Albatross, White Garden. Chop Suey. 7 p.m. $5 SU students/$8 GA. ALICIA PRICE

Big Freedia This queen diva has already stunned Seattle crowds with her bootylicious twerking twice in the past six months—first as the unconventional opening act for The Postal Service’s KeyArena show, then at this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party. To say her brand of bounce music is something all its own would be doing her a disservice. Neumos. 8 p.m. $15 adv. 21 and over. KP

Lupe Fiasco The most recent effort from this Chicago rapper is the confusingly titled Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. I. (Apparently the record that broke him, Food & Liquor, wasn’t a great American rap album.) This tour is in advance of his sixth album Tetsuo & Youth (also, it seems, not a great American rap album), set to drop early next year. With Stalley, Sadistik. Showbox SoDo. 8 p.m. $32.50 adv./$36 DOS. All ages. AG
