Beatnik Studios, 8 p.m., $10-$15
Sacramento, CA 95811
C Plus’ official debut, All C.I.T.Y. (Creative Intelligent Troubled Youth), follows months of grinding in the hip-hop blogosphere, whether it’s making sharply professional videos for songs like “Captain Kirk” or remixing beats like Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow” into the Sactown anthem “Black and Purple.” Sadly, the Kings’ recent decision to pull up stakes is a reminder that local talent often goes ignored and eventually leaves for more receptive climes. So, support C Plus while the emcee calls Sac his home. Besides, the lineup includes Illecism and Fly High, Chuuwee, DLRN, AV and DJ Flow, DJ Oasis and Matt Cali. 2421A 17th Street, www.myspace.com/cplusmusic.
