LA rapper and favorite of many varietals of hip-hop fan, Vince Staples makes his yearly pilgrimage to the Twin Cities, and this year—as is the trend—he’s taking the deserved leap from his 2018 show at First Ave’s Mainroom to the Palace Theater. His national Smile, You’re on Camera tour introduces his latest and greatest album FM!, which even more so pays an homage of sorts to his Long Beach hometown than usual, delivering dark, unforgiving lyrics with cutting edge sink-into-it beats. JPEGMAFIA and Trill Sammy open for what promises to be an uncompromisingly energetic evening. Saturday, March 16th, 8 PM. $32.50 advance, $35 door. —Isabelle Wattenberg
