SoundCheck: Lil Jon, Rock for Research, Chubb Rock

Rock for Research

Featuring Not Tonight Josephine, Trace of Day, Ken Apperson, Southside Serenade, Stained Angel, Drew Street Mary, Rise of Saturn, Make the Mountain, Ins and Outs

Details: Saturday 3 p.m. Jannus Live, 16 Second St. N, St. Petersburg. $12-$15. (727) 565-0551.

Nine local bands will play Jannus Live in support of Miles For Hope, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funding for brain tumor research. Pinellas quintet Rise of Saturn has a horn-infused, time-signature slashing style dubbed "prog-hop", Make the Mountain consists of former Stalling Dawn members, and Not Tonight Josephine is a resolute rock act with perhaps a better chance at the big time than any other local act on the scene today.

Chubb Rock

With DJ Sandman

Details: Friday 10 p.m. Channelside IMAX, 615 Channelside Drive, Tampa. $15 and up. (813) 221-0700.

Comparable to Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince's clean and positive approach to hip-hop, Chubb Rock's no-drugs, no-guns style landed him hits like Treat 'Em Right and Just the Two of Us. The Brooklyn rapper and former Brown University student makes a rare Tampa appearance at the IMAX theater in Channelside. Rated PG-13.

>> Lil Jon

With DJ Scantman

Details: Tonight at 10. The Honey Pot, 1507 E Seventh Ave., Ybor City. $25 and up. (813) 340-5336.

It's good to be the king — the king of crunk that is. The duties are as follows: Sip Patrón from a bejeweled chalice. Chant loudly. Repeat. Dirty South rapper Lil Jon, whose signature calls "yeaahh," "whaaat" and "okayyy" were famously satirized by Dave Chappelle, and whose collaborations with Usher, Pitbull and LMFAO are still in heavy club rotation, will stir things up at Ybor's Honey Pot with a two-hour DJ set.
