Riff Raff/Grand Theft 

When: Fri., April 18, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $20
Known for his outlandish outfits and keen sense of humor, Houston’s Jody Christina (aka Riff Raff) has made all the right connections during his short, four-year career. First, the guy befriended actor and comedian Simon Rex and formed a duo with plenty of crossover appeal. Not wanting to be taking too seriously, Rex adopted the pseudonym Dirt Nasty. Then, Riff Raff signed to S.O.D. Money Gang, the imprint run by hip-hop sensation Soulja Boy. And finally, he hooked up with madcap director Harmony Korine, who based a character in his new film on the flamboyant rapper. While his falsetto vocals make it sound as if Riff Raff is going for parody on 2012’s The Golden Alien, the content of tunes such as “Lil Mama I’m Sorry” and “Break Away” makes it seem as if he’s pursuing more serious topics despite his rep as a funny man. Expect to hear some tracks from the forthcoming Neon Icon, due out at the month’s end. (Niesel)
