Editor's Picks April 10-12


DJ Dexter

The Australian DJ has been exploring the intersections of Pacific Island dancing and crumping. Unfortunately he was not able to bring his whole dance crew, probably due to the international bread shortage going on right now. He will instead do a DJ set mixing Moroccan records and other non-standards with classics from hip-hop’s Golden Age II (or III maybe): The Mid-90s.

K Jell

These Norwegian rebels are in a rock ‘n roll band, and by that I mean a punk/90’s radio alternative band. Their slogan is “It’s only rock ‘n roll but we like it!!!!!” I think that’s the right number of exclamation points. Anyway, if that sounds like you, go on down and have a good time.
