LA RAPPERS Cypress Hill (right) have a reputation as lovers of the fragrant weed but their live shows have always provided excitement with large dollops of acute humour thrown in. Two comeback shows should see them running through old favourites like "Light Another" and "I Wanna Get High" as well as material from their fourth album, out shortly.

Astoria, London W1 (0171-434 0404) tonight; University, Manchester (0161- 275 2930) tomorrow

Perhaps the biggest-ever celebration of Native American music and culture in the UK takes place with the Native Rites event. Free daytime activities include storytelling, dancing, instrumental workshops and exhibitions while in the evening a grand concert is headlined by John Trudell. His AKA Graffiti Man, a mix of rock, blues and spoken word, is apparently one of Bob Dylan's all-time favourite discs. Also appearing are Nebraskan flautist and dancer, Robert Tree Cody, storyteller Gayle Ross and there's dancing and and music from the Gathering of Nations.

Barbican, London EC2 (0171-638 8891) tomorrow from 1pm; concert at 7.30pm
