Nightlife Highlights: Mobb Deep

April 24. With their second album, 1993's The Infamous, Queens duo Mobb Deep emerged as kingpins of East Coast hardcore rap and upped the ante with 1996's Hell on Earth. Comprised of MCs Prodigy and Havoc, the pair are revered for their grim-but-believable essays of street life and the gangsta hustle, which they'll bring to the Chance with this upstate hit. Although the act's output has been inconsistent since the above titles, allegedly due in part to tensions between the two members, 2014 saw the release of the respectably received but confusingly titled The Infamous Mobb Deep, which includes new music as well as tracks cut during the sessions for the above-cited 1993 opus. With Smif N Wesson. (King Los rhymes April 1; Corrosion of Conformity crushes April 15.) 6pm. $20, $45. Poughkeepsie. (845) 471-1966; Thechancetheater.com.

  • Making the Cut: Decora

    A more serious and committed Hudson Valley musical figure than Decora does not come to mind. Everything the 32-year-old does and says comes with a breathtaking level of locked-down, unwaveringly intense focus.
