How to help in the George Floyd protests and beyond.

Week In/Out

December 16, 2005


We were pleasantly surprised to wake up this morning to find the New York transit system up and running. It means we won't be relegated to the emotional Siberias of our mansions this weekend! Savor the flavor of public transport. Passengers, your weekend events.


Let's start with the Apple, shall we? Friday sees teutonic electro bros MANDY at Tonic. The holidays are a perfect time to explore your robotic-erotic side and this is the perfect soundtrack. Right around the corner, more or less, the sugary sounds of Tralala will fill up the Mercury Lounge. Their
Jesus And Mary Chain stizz will take you to the Darklands. But it's always nice to drop the Dracula routine and go out during the day. We heard it's real nice to do stuff for good causes, too. Kill two birds with one stone Saturday - Juelz Santana and Sizzla are performing at the Christmas For Katrina benefit at the Skate Key Entertainment Complex in the Bronx. Raekwon's been added to the lineup, so bring an apron.

Events elsewhere in this great nation of ours? Madlib plays the Temple Bar Saturday to celebrate his Sound Directions album release. Up the Cali coast in San Fran, lords of the decks Z-Trip and Radar, celebrate 10 years of Future Primitive Soundsessions. Longevity, dog. In Chicago the (International) Noise Conspiracy play the Beat Kitchen. Watch for the hordes of Situationists. They get a little liquor in em and it's a wrap. Also in the Chi, Rhymefest hosts The Fourth Annual All-City Battle at the
the Abbey Pub. Are you not entertained!?
