ROCK STREET9 p.m., Vino's. $5.
The formula remains the same for this new monthly hip-hop party. Local jacks-of-all-trades the 4X4 Crew
host and celebrate the release of their long-in-the-making full-length debut, “4 Brothers” (it's $5). DJs Fatality and Mr. Deetrix keep the crowd moving all night long with throwback and contemporary jams. And then, as usual, there's live talent. This time, Bobby
(A.K.A. Mr. Morbid) shares the bill with the buzzy Dallas trio Dem Southernfolkz
, who blend live instrumentation — shades of gospel and soul — with hip-hop with a decidedly positive message. It'll be a homecoming for rapper Richard “Kinfolk Jack” Jackson, born and raised here in Little Rock. As usual, all ages are welcome.
