Yelawolf Slumerican Made tour at Empire. Expect an insane scene when the sharp-tongued, beer-swilling, NASCAR watching Alabama rapper drops by for a free show. Presumably the RSVP slots exceeded club capacity by a long shot, so show up early even if you’re on the list. Georgia rapper Rittz, one of South by Southwest 2014’s biggest breakouts, opens. Technically sold out. 10 p.m. doors. 606 E. Seventh St. empireatx.com. — D.S.S.

Also: Pacific Northwest mainstays the Melvins, primordial standard-bearers of all things grunge, bring the tour for their new album “Hold It In” to the Mohawk’s outdoor stage with Le Butcherettes. … Nashville singer-songwriter Griffin House stops by the Cactus Cafe. … Fans of Texas roadhouse country act Roger Creager can catch another side of his musical persona with his “Piano Bar” gig at the Parish. … Sun Radio’s weekly Texas Radio Live show from 6 to 8 p.m. at Guero’s Oak Garden features the Guy Forsyth Blues Band and Rich Hopkins & the Luminarios.
