Razor sharp 43-year-old K-Rino (pronounced like the town in Nevada) has shown no signs of slowing down as he hits midlife. The gritty H-Town staple’s past four years boast eight releases, with September’s The Deprogramming Pill notching his 24th in 20 years. Rino headlines a night of hip-hop alongside local firing squad Super Smash Bros., SHSM, Soopafrendz, Madd tha Gangsta, and Casino’s Frat House Gang, whose dexterity ranges from the on-the-cool hip-hop of Dat Boy Supa to the tough-as-nails Texas Terror.– Chase Hoffberger
Last year’s ACL Fest proved the ultimate tease: one week of Lionel Richie hitting everything from “Easy” and “Hello” to “Brick House” and “Running With the Night” followed by another in which the rains fell so hard they drowned out Richie’s Sunday finale. Tuskegee’s golden child instead played an intimate solo gig in some techie’s living room. The great Commodore and his immaculate set of chompers return for an unofficial makeup here, with Goodie Mob goon turned peacock-feathered hit protégé CeeLo Green in tow. All the hits, all night long.– Chase Hoffberger
