Khalid is only 18, but the El Paso, Texas-based artist is already on a lot of critics’ radars thanks to his early hit, “Location.”

He’s coming through the Larimer Lounge, 2721 Larimer St., tonight and getting support from local singer-songwriter Kayla Marque.

Doors are at 7 p.m., the show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $17.


Curious Theater Company presents “The Happiest Song Plays Last,” tonight at 8 p.m.

The play features Yaz, a community organizer and “reluctant matriarch” who ends up as the voice of her struggling community in North Philadelphia., and her movie-star cousin Elliot struggling with war nightmares in Jordan. The story includes live Puerto Rican music throughout.

Tickets are $24-34. The theater is at 1080 Acoma St.


Black Shirt Brewing Co., 3719 Walnut St., is celebrating a limited release of Frontmaniac, a double dry-hopped version of its Frontman IPA.

The beer is double dry-hopped with over 5 pounds per barrel of Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops and brewed with oats, wheat and a blend of yeasts. It’s got tropical fruit notes, bright citrus characters and field grass.

Frontmaniac will be available on draft and in 32-ounce Crowlers. Brewery members will get a free 5-ounce pour today (bring your card). Stop by anytime until close at 10 p.m.
