You’ve heard it on Adidas commercials. You’ve followed the hilarious Vine memes. Now witness it live. “Ultimate” by Denzel Curry sparked a massive following and fan base after the track went viral earlier this year. And it’s hard not to fall in love with the song; it’s got a build-up that’ll put you on the edge of your seat and a wildly satisfying drop with tons of bass and machine gun flows from the Carol City, Florida rapper. Millennials around the world have timed their ridiculous antics and hilarious dance moves to the song’s hard-hitting drop, and it was all documented via six-second video clips on Vine. Peep the meme by scoping out the #IAmTheOne hashtag on the social media platform (while you still can), then see Curry perform it live at Vinyl along with other bangers such as “Knotty Head” and “This Life.” Remember to get your phone out when the beat drops! (In Hard Rock Hotel, 9 p.m., hardrockhotel.com.) It’s thirsty Thursday, so wet your palate with some new wine. STK will pour the first of just six Melchiors (18-liter bottles) of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon. Each bottle is etched and hand-painted, and when full, weighs a whopping 60 pounds. Get your drink on!

Looking for the Sremm? They’ve relocated to Drai’s.Rae Sremmurd, the polarizing, youthful Atlanta rap duo consisting of Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi, hits the stage to deliver a double shot of uncompromising club bangers. Beyond crafting club-ready hits such as “No Type,” “Black Beatles” and “Start a Party,” the two are advocates for the “SremmLife”—a noun, verb and preposition used to describe anything about the unforgiving lifestyle.
“Crash a car? SremmLife! Lose a girlfriend? SremmLife!” said Lee in an interview by celebrity journalist Nardwuar. Jxmmi even has it tattooed across his stomach. If you’ve had a rough day, indulge in the wildness of the duo, and blame the SremmLife for any party fouls that happen. You’re on your own if you get kicked out of the club, though.

She’s back! Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, rapper, producer and all-around diva Lauryn Hill hits The Foundry to give another eclectic career-spanning performance. When she rocked Brooklyn Bowl in May 2014, Hill cranked out soothing acoustic renditions of “I Gotta Find Peace of Mind” and “Mr. Intentional,” hopped on the mic for a few Fugees songs such as “Killing Me Softly” and “Ready or Not,” then performed a half-dozen hits from her 1998 Grammy Award-winning album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. And, in diva fashion, she did it with style and grace. She really can do it all. See if L-Boogie changes things up and performs acoustic renditions of any Fugees tunes, or breaks out into some impromptu spoken word. We wouldn’t put it above the talented goddess.

We’re spoiled. Yesterday, The Foundry welcomed an R&B legend. Today, see a rock ’n’ roll one: Ringo Starr. The former member of the Beatles brings decades’ worth of songwriting excellence, biting wit and undeniable swagger to The Smith Center, and he’s not coming alone, either. Starr’s all-star band includes multi-instrumentalist Todd Rundgren, ex Santana and Journey keyboard player Gregg Rolie, singer/bassist of Mr. Mister, Richard Page and more. Beyond cuts from Starr’s prolific catalog and covers of the bandmembers’ own greatest hits, expect rockin’ renditions of classic rock songs such as Toto’s “Africa” and Carlos Santana’s “Black Magic Woman.” It’s a quick way to cross those must-see names off your list.

Do yourself a favor by catching festival trap pioneer Party Favor when he rocks the room at Jewel. The Los Angeles DJ/producer is still on his Party and Destroy North American tour, which is proving to be a hit with the EDM community. Favor posted a teaser video of his epic intro to his Facebook page, which included a peek at an unreleased track that left fans ecstatic. Judging from the short clip, the new song is quite the departure for Favor, being heavy on the melody and less on the earth-shattering drops we’re used to hearing. See if he gives us more tonight.

Step into the time machine that is Oddfellows and rekindle your love for overalls, tacky knickknacks from Spencer’s Gifts and Aaliyah’s all-too-short career for the video club’s totally awesome ’90s night. Celebrate the music of the decade and don’t be surprised if the VJ fuses Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” or Oasis’ “Wonderwall” with Dr. Dre’s “Let Me Ride.” It’s ambitious, but trust us, it works. Halloween was a few weeks ago, but we encourage you to unearth some gems from deep in your closet so you can fully immerse yourself in the nostalgia. It’ll be all that and a bag of chips!
