Hip-hop is often a narrative about a performer's own personal struggles, but sometimes the best songs are just about having a good time. Local rapper Vicke Vyto delivers fluid verses on his new single, "Happy Hour," a syncopated party starter that celebrates the moment of a night out. The 26-year-old rapper's repertoire consists of several mixtapes that dial up jams including "Ignorant Pains." Vyto drops lines like, "They lie to me by telling me the truth, first rule of truth you never find one that's absolute" over a dazzling beat that makes it sound Kanye-esque. This show is the "Happy Hour" single release party. Zey_Musiq, Grande Wop, and Ryan Cycles share the bill.
Vicke Vyto performs on Saturday, March 28, at The California Brew Haus, 402 West Ridge Road. 8 p.m. $10. ticketfly.com.
