The Physics
Whenever the Physics pop up to play a local show, it always makes for a party packed with good vibes. The hip-hop group's upcoming show at the Crocodile should up the energetic positivity ante even more. This time around, a full live band will back the Physics, giving the band an even more fleshed out smooth sound. Additionally, proceeds from the show go towards the medical expenses of the group's friend Jon Moore, who has dealt with kidney rejection. The Crocodile, $18
