Tonight's top show: Brother Ali at Metro

Brother Ali: With his fifth studio album, “Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color,” this Minneapolis MC affirms his credentials as a righteous advocate for the disenfranchised. The megaphone voice and hyper-literate rhyme skills bring the fury over beats that bridge rock and soul, 8 p.m. Wednesday at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St., $15;  metrochicago.com.
