The show is sold out, but industrious heads will find a way to see Brooklyn rap phenom Joey Badass, a teenager who’s been likened to any number of New York rhyme heavyweights, at Cabaret Underworld with his crew Pro Era, along with Flatbush Zombies, the Underachievers and Statik Selektah. 1403 Ste-Elisabeth, 8 p.m.
