Tonight @ Mad Planet - 9 p.m.

Now that he’s of legal drinking age and doesn’t need a parent to drive him to his shows, Juiceboxxx has evolved beyond his early teenage, suburban geek-rap shtick and carved out a more sustainable niche in the indie electro-dance scene, where he’s amused crowds with his adenoidal screeds and his manically enthusiastic shows while aligning himself with like-minded friends on the trendy IHEARTCOMIX record label.

Today @ Potter Ave in Bay View - Noon to 8 p.m.

In a brilliant marketing move, Pabst Blue Ribbon opted against advertising directly to its growing consumer base of young, bohemian types who view drinking unpretentious, bargain beer as a badge of honor.

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, July 24, Extra Golden w/ Kings Go Forth @ Cactus Club, 9 p.m. Compared to the typical music scenes, Nairobi, Kenya stands out as a curiously unique starting point for the multina tional Extra Golden, which owes as much stylistically to classic American rock aesthetics as traditional Kenyan Benga music.

Tonight @ the Cactus Club - 9:00 PM

Pittsburgh’s Grand Buffet, a nerd-rap duo with a jokey, Tenacious D-esque live show, return to Milwaukee for the second time this year. Tonight at their 9 p.m. Cactus Club show, they’ll be paired with a fitting opener: Milwaukee’s Juiceboxxx, an electro-retro-hip-hopper who is also drawn to rap’s more irreverent side.

Thursday, March 13th @ Beauty Bar – 9:00 PM

Juiceboxxx is a 21-year-old rapper and producer from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His brand of "energy music" is rooted in the past 30 years of rap and dance and informed by an urgent punk sensibility. Live, Juiceboxxx is the rare performer who takes cues from both Big Daddy Kane and Iggy Pop, kicking up a storm of energy that is at once thrillingly unhinged . . .

Plus: Colette asks

Those who remember Darius Rucker's ill-fated dance with hip-hop can rest assured. East St. Louis selector Bitch Ass Darius has more interest in crafting the kind of ghetto techno that would make any plaid-happy preppy blush.
