The intense and uncompromising Portland rapper Brzowski has almost singlehandedly kept the flame of indie hip hop burning in Portland over the past two decades. He marks the release of his third solo album, Enmityville, backed by his musically menacing crew Vinyl Cape, at a show at SPACE Gallery (538 Congress St., Portland) that also features underground acts Ceschi, the suitably goofy Spoken Nerd, Portland MC Stay on Mars and the Nashville-based DJ Quiet Entertainer at 8:30 p.m. Tix: $8 (all ages). 828-5600. space538.org.
