Dean Risko, Emerson Kennedy, Ya Boy Pell, DJ Juggy Staff Pick

When: Fri., Oct. 17, 9:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $5
Rappers hold a special place in their hearts for homecomings. The only thing more satisfying than nonstop neighborhood shout-outs on EPs and mixtapes is actually stepping on a home-turf stage, as former Salt Lake rapper and singer Dean Risko will be doing tonight alongside fellow Los Angeles transplant Emerson Kennedy. If you have yet to see Risko live, the first thing you'll notice is that this rapper has moves—meaning he can dance, especially for a white dude with a beard that looks like it was a hand-me-down from Dodgers relief pitcher Brian Wilson. Besides his shuffles, Risko also has a unique brand of melody-infused hip-hop that's poppy and tough at the same time and feels something like a mixture of Mike Posner and Kid Cudi. Yo Boy Pell and DJ Juggy will kick things off. (Colin Wolf)
