  • Shatner's World
    Shatner's World 4/24 7:30PM
     

    “We Just Live in It” is the inevitable subtitle of William Shatner’s one-man show, which debuted on Broadway in 2012, and of all the solipsists to stake that claim, the one true Captain Kirk probably has the most shut-ins calling him god. If that’s you, dust off the doughnut pillow to watch and enjoy the filmed version, screened for a single night in theaters, regardless of how many times you saw it live on tour. Cheek-licking fans of Shatner’s “Rocket Man,” will hoot at the 83-year-old fitted with a flesh-tone wireless mic for the stereotypical black-box solo-show, but fans of both Shatner and good storytelling hoping for the sort of insight evident on Has Been (his pretty great collaboration with Ben Folds) might take encouragement from this: We haven’t seen Shatner’s World, but we did see Shatner last year, outside a Laurie Anderson show.

  • Cage The Elephant
    Cage The Elephant 4/24 7:00PM
     

    If you know one Cage the Elephant track, it’s probably “No Rest for the Wicked.” To refresh, it’s the one that sounds suspiciously like a re-write of Beck’s “Loser,” only with a more dangerously catchy chorus. If the rest of the Kentucky band’s catalog didn’t bear the Beck resemblance in sound, it certainly did in style. The quartet’s few albums gleefully sported a “why the fuck not?” spirit, jumping from Cheap Trick’s power-pop, the Arctic Monkeys’ dance-floor alt-rock and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ blue-eyed funk, with no look given to the rearview. Cage the Elephant has settled a bit since those early records, with 2013’s Melophobia leaning in a more streamlined indie-rock direction. However, this approach has yet to dim the group’s electric live show, powered primarily by energetic frontman Matt Shultz. With Cleveland roots-rock combo J Roddy Walston & the Business in the opening slot, expect no rest for the wicked or otherwise.

  • Dead the Poets
    Dead the Poets 4/24 9:00PM
     

    Dead the Poets, a collaboration between San Anto natives Kizer and Law, is throwing a positively ill party to celebrate the release of its second album, Korean Mardi Gras. The album itself, which is already available in more or less finished form at kizersoze.bandcamp.com, excels on the strength of Kizer’s sultry yet bangin’ production (which features tons of delightfully brassy samples) and the rappers’ wittily profane flows. But the expansive 21-track behemoth of an album has something for all types of hip-hop lovers—from sassy social commentary to inventive if cringe-worthy similes, from sunny day jaunts to thumping club tracks. Like the album, the show in its honor features some of our best local hip-hop talent, including Chisme’s REL, MAD-ONE and Current-lauded emcee Mr. Composition, among many others. But that’s not all. This unique party will also feature a producer showcase, burlesque dancers and live painting.

  • Fiesta Cornyation
    Fiesta Cornyation 4/24 7:30PM

  • Mr. Composition CD Release

    Kevin Prince, aka Mr. Composition, is one of the hardest workers in SA music. The 23-year-old has released at least one LP or mixtape every year since he was 18 (much of this material is available at mrcomposition.bandcamp.com). Last year’s release, Running Red Lights Through Life, was one of my favorite local albums of 2013. It laid bare the rapper’s growth from a curious and earnest wordsmith to a master of his craft, gifted at melding personal narrative with commentary on universal concerns. Graffiti the Mind, out on May 2, sees the emcee truly coming into his own. Produced by San Anto native Ruler Why, Graffiti the Mind features beats that enhance the meaning of individual songs. Prince rhymes with entertaining, engaging lyrics, delivered with a unique flare in diverse styles. As Prince told the Current, he has long used rap as “a means of expressing [himself] and [his] experiences and frustrations.” As Prince has grown as an artist, he’s expanded his scope, concerned now with broader societal issues. Most impressively, these aren’t just raps; these are songs. Graffiti, anchored by the anthemic posse cut “Believe” and thought-provoking extended metaphor “Graffiti Lenz,” is a joy to bump and communicates an unstoppably positive message: Be patient, work your ass off, ask questions and give of yourself if you want to receive anything in return. Don’t miss the chance to see Graffiti done live at Fitzgerald’s on April 25
