It's Happening Tonight!

MUSIC—In a rap scene where oafish repetition is increasingly rewarded, Joey Bada$$ is a welcome throwback to the lyrics-intensive hiphop of the '90s. The 18-year-old Brooklyn emcee has released just two mixtapes since last year, but has garnered enough well-earned hype you'd swear he's got a major release under his belt. It's coming, and this show is your preview. DVH
w/Antwon, Nacho Picasso, Gang$ign$; Roseland, 8 NW 6th, 8 pm, $18, all ages

FILM—Give the late, great Rodney Dangerfield the respect he deserves and see 1986's hilarious classic Back to School on the big screen! One of Dangerfield's best, Back to School also features some guy named Kurt Vonnegut and some kid named Robert Downey Jr.—but Rodney, as usual, steals every goddamn scene. EH
