Thurs., March 21, Murs
Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub, 10 p.m., $16-$19
Murs has had a remarkably varied hip-hop career. From famously teaming up with Grover on the song “24 Hrs. w/a G,” to making dead-serious statements on “Walk Like a Man,” or pairing with 9th Wonder on many albums, the artist exemplifies a vast repertoire of musical statements. On This Generation, his fine recent album with lyrical collaborator Fashawn, the rapper's talents are at their peak. Check out the liquid bass lines and easy-going summer feel of “'64 Impala” or the steel-drum hook and heavy guitars that propel “Slash Gordon.” It's all Good Music, like his classic sophomore album. 2708 J Street, www.mursworld.com.
