I Put a Spell on You
Amiri Baraka

Music to Your Ears

Diction and Contra Diction

For a country defined by freedom of speech, America can be alarmingly intolerant when people express themselves. Amiri Baraka knows this firsthand. Over half a century, the award-winning poet, playwright, music critic, political activist and Black Arts Movement founder has stirred controversy and incited criticism for his work. In 2002, for instance, Baraka was named poet laureate of New Jersey and published the poem "Somebody Blew Up America." The poem deals with 9/11, racism and classism. The first stanza, with preface, reads:

I Put a Spell on You

Rock, roll and wail at Voodoo Scooters

Voodoo Scooters is truly a full service shop: sales, repairs, maintenance, art gallery and an occasional all-ages rock venue. Scoots are rolled away to make room for amps, drums and music lovers. Sound spills outside, encouraging passersby who just ate at the nearby Frontier Restaurant to linger on the sidewalk. Monday’s show will either lure them in or chase ’em away. It doesn’t much matter, as the tiny place is sure to be packed.

Flyer on the Wall

Skull Drawings

Someone had free time in study hall and made flyers for the punk rock show—there are two versions, and the other depicts a skull-headed person playing guitar. On Sunday, Nov. 7, Fat Wreck Chords bands the Cobra Skulls and Dead to Me play an all-ages show at Amped Performance Center (4200 Lomas NE). Locals Spring-Loaded Hot Dog, The Ill Motion and 3 Times Toxic begin opening performances at 6 p.m. sharp. Admission is $10. Go to ampedperform.com for more. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Sep 2)

The Treachery of Music

Dada Life • electronic, house

This is not a DJ duo from Sweden. Wait. No. Actually, it is. Sorry, I got carried away. Dada Life is one of the biggest DJ acts in the world. I don't really know what that entails, though, to be honest. It involves dancing, I think. And auto-tune. But I don't really care, because these guys are hilarious. Their logo is a champagne bottle flanked by two peeled bananas. They have press photos involving pastel suits and Sears family photo-style ambiguous cloudy backgrounds, and one showing member Stefan Engblom shoving an oversized piece of meat into member Olle Cornéer's straining face while giving words of encouragement. That's funny. And anyone that funny deserves a show of your support, which you will have a chance to display when they come to The Stage this Friday, Sept. 2 at 9pm. If you're over 21, get your ass down there and let these boys know how appreciative you are of their comic genius. Oh. And let them know you like their music (even if you're old and don't get it, like me).

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Sep 2)

Indieburque

Kid Dinosaur • indie rock • St. Petersburg • Cry Steve Cry • psychedelic, surf Americana • Sweet Nothin' • punk rock

Is a Burqeño actually a Burqeño if they don't support their local artists? If you're unsure, indie rock band Kid Dinosaur will be headlining a show at the Launchpad this Friday Sept. 2. Doors open at 8PM. It's a 21+ show, because what's a show without a liquid courage (just for dancing, though)? Tickets are only $5 . Performances will also include St. Petersburg, Cry Steve Cry and Sweet Nothin'

EVENT HORIZON (Saturday, Sep 3)

To Infinity and Beyond

Watsky • Witt Lowry • hip-hop • Daye Jack • rap • Chukwudi Hodge

In search of rap that's about more than hoes and getting turnt at the club? Cruise over to Sunshine Theater on Saturday, Sept. 3, to experience WATSKY, Witt Lowry, Daye Jack and Chuckwudi Hodge. George Watsky is a spoken word artist, rapper, poet and author who has just released his fourth studio album, X Infinity, and let me tell ya, he's rad. Don't believe me? Check out his performance as Shakespeare in “Epic Rap Battles of History,” the flaming-hot “Whoa Whoa Whoa” from All You Can Do, or the fact that he won the Brave New Voices National Poetry Slam in 2006. He tackles complex issues like school shootings, politics, immigration, social media and the bizarreness of the modern human experience with wit and a badass beat. Tickets are $20 for general admission to this all-ages show and doors open at 7pm.
