More than 10 years ago brothers Matt and Chris Dickens began what became a very popular, sometimes adored and sometimes notorious club night at Burt's Tiki Lounge. Thursdays, once reportedly dominated by electronica and ’80s pop, became a dance party based around British music, made for and by music lovers.
DJ Codebreaka, Mantis Fist, Solar 1 & MIC Raw, Zack Freeman & The Mundane Cliches, Government Cheese and Witchdokta Projeckt get live on Saturday, Oct. 17, and don’t stop the hip-hop until it’s Sunday morning. 9 p.m. at Atomic Cantina (315 Gold SW, free, 21+). (Laura Marrich)
The Sylvan Esso show at the Sunshine Theater is sold out already, which is a mega bummer. But! You can still go to the afterparty, which happens to include a performance by local psych-pop band GERUNDING, who are just as, if not more, cute than Sylvan Esso. Not that it’s a cuteness competition, just saying. It all goes down at the Moonlight Lounge at 11pm on Thursday, March 22. Even if you’re not going to the concert before ... you’re still invited. For ages 21+.
