    Travis Scott, Teezo Touchdown

    The 31-year-old Beaumont, Texas, native opens for Travis Scott on the latter’s first tour since the 2021 Astroworld Festival tragedy. For his part, Teezo has enjoyed a 2020s ascent: hanging out with Madonna, a feature on Drake’s new LP, Taco Bell commercial syncs (“Mood Swings”), and a thoroughly entertaining 2022 ACL Fest showing. The eccentric artist mixes indie rock, hip-hop, and pinches of pop-punk with the looseness of what you may attempt in the shower. There’s an ocean of tickets remaining on Ticketmaster for the Thanksgiving Eve show (starting at $51.50) while resale for the Tuesday show has sunk to under $100.
