13 ways to do it right

This week’s top rap shows and DJ parties from the big venues to the lofts, film fest freebies to improv collectives.

shineI’m keeping it brief this week because there’s lots to do, so let’s do it.

Thursday: Mobb Deep bring their 20th anniversary tour to le Petit Olympia. 1482 Amherst, 9 p.m., $40/$55

TV On the Radio get ready to drop a new one at Corona Theatre. 2490 Notre-Dame W., 8 p.m., $30

And CJLO get happy with Beats and Brews: The Hip Hop Edition at Kafein. 1429A Bishop, 7 p.m. till closing

Friday: Ryan Hemsworth puts the beats down at le Belmont with guests Munno and more. 4483 St-Laurent, 10 p.m., $20

Saturday: A freebie at RIDM featuring Socalled and Orkestar Kriminal at la Chaufferie du Coeur des Sciences at UQAM. 175 Président-Kennedy, 10:30 p.m., free

Jibré, Woodman and any, many more claim title to Lords of the Underground (no, not the classic rap group) in St-Henri. 679 St-Remi, 10 p.m.

Sunday: Boundary brings Still Life to life at Bleury Bar à Vinyle. See our interview on Cult MTL tomorrow. 2109 Bleury, 8:30 p.m., $10

And, as bears repeating now and again, the weekly Kalmunity Jazz Project shows you how to improvise at Resonance Café. 5175A Parc, 8:30 p.m., $8

Scotland “raggamuffin” MC Soom T hits le Belmont with local support from Clay and Friends, a live hip hop outfit everyone keeps telling me to check out. 4483 St-Laurent, 9 p.m., $21

Monday: Rescheduled from earlier this fall, Kalmunity’s Fredy V launches his debut solo EP, Varsity Vol.1, at Petit Campus. 57 Prince-Arthur E., 7:30 p.m., $10 (includes digital copy of EP)

EXTRA HEADS-UP: Know that next Friday, the M for Montreal festival absolutely kills it with headliners BadBadNotGood and a local line-up that I’m pretty sure ranks as an all-time greatest case scenario with the Posterz, Loud Lary Ajust, Dead Obies and Tommy Kruise at the SAT. 1201 St-Laurent, 10 p.m., $20.25

The next night, a Boston rap marathon takes over Cabaret Underworld with Termanology, Ed O.G., Akrobatik and Reks. 1403 Ste-Elisabeth, 10 p.m., $15

And yo: Get your Run the Jewels tickets way before Nov. 27 or kick yourself as I am almost positive they’ll sell out. Also, pick up a copy of this month’s Cult MTL to see excerpts from my interviews with Killer Mike and El-P. Club Soda (1225 St-Laurent), 8 p.m., $23.50/$25
