Kevin Gates at Emo’s. Baton Rouge rapper Gates uses the catchphrase “I don’t get tired” (#idgt) to define himself, and for the past two years his hard-grinding work ethic has made him one rap’s fastest rising stars. His debut album doesn’t drop until Dec. 11, but a series of mixtapes that straddle the line between gritty Southern street style and the most appealing aspects of radio rap have produced a bevy of hit singles. Expect a blazingly hype rap-along event. $25. 8 p.m. 2015 E. Riverside Drive. emosaustin.com. — D.S.S.
