Celsius 7 and Hiright: Celsius 7 

When: Wed., Jan. 18, 8:30 p.m. 2012
Price: free

Besides managing, handling, and occasionally speaking for his licentious, Seventies-style alter ego, Smooth Rick the Chosen, Jacob Battersby also has his own rap career on the side as Celsius 7, and it's picked up a lot since he released the album Life Well Spent in September. Judging from the lyrical content, he's had a life well spent indeed, though not in the sense of laying on a divan, sipping Alizé, and dangling grapes over his mouth. In fact, it's been rocky, pocked with regret, and riddled with failed romances. Sure, he talks about partying on the album, but he also grouses about falling in love and being jilted. Hopefully he'll have a few upbeat things to rap about at EraArtBar's (19 Grand Ave., Oakland) Industry Night party on Wednesday, Jan. 18. Performing alongside him is DJ Hiright, who also produced much of the album. 8:30 p.m., free. OaklandEra.com
