Schoolboy Q 

When: Sun., March 4, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $20

If you've got faith in the future of hip-hop, the only thing that could be better right now than seeing Schoolboy Q would be seeing Schoolboy Q in the company of Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, or Jay Rock. Who's to say if that will happen on Sunday;  but either way, Q is maybe the most exciting member of the aforementioned Black Hippy crew, and an appearance from any one of the LA-based rap group in addition would be a treat. Habits & Contradictions came out at the beginning of the year and, despite all the albums that have come out since, it still sits securely at the top of my playlist. Q's ragged bark recalls Kanye West at his angriest, his cocky diatribes are reminiscent of Dre'sChronic 2001 at its most dominant. But he's also clearly a loyal soldier, dedicated above all to furthering both his own career and those of his South Central compatriots: At The New Parish (579 18th St., Oakland) on Sunday, Mar. 4 at 9 p.m., $20, TheNewParish.com
