Music Monday 7/23: Drake & Migos and more

Whether you like your hip-hop ice-cold and Canadian or dipped in Dirty South hot sauce, this Thursday’s Drake + Migos show at Vivint Smart Home Arena will satisfy.

Law Rocks (www.lawrocks.org) is a band of lawyers that jams under the banner, “Rock Globally, Give Locally.” The idea is to give themselves a creative outlet while also raising money for non-profits that endeavor to do the same.
