Live Tonight: Mobb Deep, Sleeper Agent

Mobb Deep It’s been a little more than a year since Prodigy and Havoc have put their differences aside. Just as they did after 1993’s forgettable Juvenile Hell, the pioneers of East Coast gangsta rap have again rebooted their approach, mixing a mature perspective with the straight street talk that made them legends. With LA (Language Arts), Cam the Mac, DJ Swervewon. Crocodile. 8 p.m. $18 adv. MFB

21-year-old spitfire Alex Kandel brings a lot of attitude to Sleeper Agent, the Kentucky pop-rock six-piece she fronts with singer/guitarist Tony Smith. On March’s About Last Night, her voice ranges from raspy to folky to as in-your-face as her multicolored hair. Throw in a musical sugar rush, and Last Night is an instant favorite for pop-rockers young and old. With HOLYCHILD, Pagiins. The Showbox. 7:45 p.m. $12 adv./$14 DOS. All ages. ACP
