Eight Gigs: $uicideboy$

Wed., Nov. 2, 7:30 p.m., Harlow’s Restaurant & Nightclub, $20-$25

New Orleans duo $uicideboy$ get lumped in with the whole violent, horrorcore rap scene and, in a way, it’s a perfect fit. Their lyrics are dark and grim, but the music doesn’t feel aggressive. The members spin some haunting, eerie beats, and rather than scream the lyrics at you, the duo spits low-key hypnotic verses. Really, the violence is more internal. Suicide—no surprise—is a common theme, as is the devil and other dark, mystical forces. It might seem like the ingredients for corny rap, but it’s really chilling hip-hop. The new record, Eternal Grey, is a must-have album for your Halloween collection. 2708 J Street, www.g59records.com/suicideboys.
