Nov. 7: E-40 at Odd Fellow’s Hall

With over a hundred advance tickets sold, it was a supreme letdown when the E-40 show at the Santa Rosa Armory back in August was shut down by police before even getting underway. Just like the Vallejo rapper got his second wind with his smash album My Ghetto Report Card after a long career languishing in obscurity, so the ill-fated show gets its second wind by moving to . . . the Odd Fellows Hall? You read it right. Underneath framed medals and portraits of past encampment officers—not to mention a hallway covered in garish photos of Rose Parade floats from the 1960s to today—the “Ambassador of the Bay” makes a return to the area slangin’ his trademark rapid delivery of crazy-intellectual lingo. The Ambassador’s subordinate lodge includes “noble grand” Turf Talk, “chaplain” Laroo Nump, “wardens” the DB’z, “color bearer” Cousin Fik, “vice grand” Ant D.O.G. and a host of guardians and supporters on Saturday, Nov. 7, at the Odd Fellows’ Hall. 545 Pacific Ave., Santa Rosa. 8pm. $30. 707.843.6624.Gabe Meline
