106 & Park Closer to My Dreams Tour Featuring Tyga

When: Sat., July 9, 7:30 p.m. 2011

If you grew up in the Eighties and early Nineties, then any research into the lineup for 106 & Park's "Closer to My Dreams" Tour will make you feel, well, really old. Largely comprised of acts associated with Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment record label, it features rapper Lil Twist alongside Jawan Harris, Trevante, and the R&B group Mindless Behavior. Twist does a cover of the XScape adultery song "My Little Secret," except he tweaks the lyrics to reflect a male point of view. Mindless Behavior will conjure the ghosts of boys bands past (i.e., New Edition and Immature). The big highlight is Tyga, another Lil Wayne protégé, whose claim to fame is the dancehall-influenced single "Coconut Juice." He'll be the tour's featured artist. At The Fillmore (1805 Geary Blvd., San Francisco) on Saturday, July 9. 7 p.m., $28.50.
