MUSIC | Bilal presented by The Main Ingredient
Bilal rolls in to T-Dot, with a 5 piece band in tow, supporting his latest platter, Airtight's Revenge on the Plug Research label. This soulful artist has collabed with some of the best, including Dr. Dre, J Dilla, and Nottz. Label complications surrounding his last album haven't kept this good man down - his spirits are high and tonight will be a blast. Also on the bill are Slakah The Beatchild, and a host of DJs.
Revival (783 College Street), 10pm, $30
MUSIC | Skrillex
