August Alsina: Sunday, Sept. 21, at the Midland … Teen idols aren’t what they used to be. Anyone offended by the antics of Miley Cyrus will be completely flabbergasted by August Alsina. The newly minted star makes Justin Bieber seem like a choirboy. On “I Luv This” — the edited title of the vocalist’s profane breakout hit — Alsina, 22, boasts that “I’m way too drunk to be talkin’ like this, I’m way too high to be trippin’ like this, I’m way to young to be livin’ like this.” The New Orleans native has embarked on his first tour as a headliner. Alsina will receive another career boost when he serves as the opening act on Usher’s forthcoming arena tour. Tickets are $25 in advance through axs.com.
