Eight Gigs: A$AP Ferg

Wed., June 8, 7 p.m., Ace of Spades, $35

Hard to believe A$AP Ferg’s Trap Lord is nearly two years old. Tracks like “Hood Pope,” “Shabba” and “Didn’t Wanna Do That” still sound jarring and alive with paranoia. His follow-up, Always Strive and Prosper, is a far different Ferg; some might say it panders to EDM and true schoolers. It conflicts with our understanding of Ferg, even though “Psycho” knocks like a classic Boot Camp Clique cut. Still, tracks like “New Level” and “Yammy Gang” will make security nervous from the mosh potential. Take it or leave it, Tory Lanez is along for the night. 1417 R Street, http://alwaysstriveand
