#THEDOPENESS: Things To Do This Weekend (3/2-3/5)

posted by Alex March 2, 2017

The weekend is pretty much here. As always, there is always something to do or see in the city. We’ve made the planning easy for you and included some of our picks to be at for the weekend. Take a look below, I’m sure you’ll catch us at some of these!

Los Campesinos! – 3/2 @ The Metro: No, Los Campesinos is not Mexican Regional Band. Los Campesinos! are actually an Indie band from Wales and they’ll be performing at The Metro. Buy your tickets here!

Kevin Abstract – 3/3 @ Subterranean: Make sure you’re posted up at Sub-T on Friday night as Kevin Abstract will be in town. Purchase tickets now, because we’re sure this show will be sold out!

Heavyweight Soul – 3/3 @ The Whistler: Maybe you’re just trying to have some drinks and vibe to some dope tracks this weekend. If that’s so, head over to The Whistler on Friday and catch DJ Mr. Jaytoo playing nothing but soul, funk, and disco vibes.

Ibn Inglor – 3/4 @ Chop Shop: Ibn Inglor is back and we couldn’t be any more excited. Check out his live set at the Chop Shop on Saturday.

Quiet Clubbing – 3/4 @ 19 East: You can’t go wrong with a good silent party. It’s even better when there is good music involved. King Marie, Manny Muscles, Evie The Cool, Boathouse, DJ Izzy E and many more will all be taking care of the different channels, so make sure you’re there!

Rapflix w/ Freddy Phatz @ Harbee Liquors: Enjoy the vibes from Freddy Phatz while watching the videos to everything that he plays. Sundays really are better at Harbee Liquors!

#TheDopeness: Things To Do This Weekend (2/23-2/26)

posted by Alex February 22, 2017

The weekend’s almost here and it’s time to make plans. Let us help you make those plans a little easier. With so much going on in the city every week, here are a handful of events that you may want to consider attending. If you got an event worth going to, @ me bruh!

Dally Auston – 2/23 @ Chop Shop: You really need to be at Chop Shop on Thursday night. Dally Auston will be blessing the stage along with a bunch of his homies. If you do one thing at all this weekend, make sure it’s going to this show. #SaveMoney #WSGTM

Stefan Ponce & Friends – 2/24 @ East Room: Stefan Ponce. East Room. Do I really have to say anything else aside from, get there nice and early? I don’t think so. You’re welcome.

Savoy – 2/25 @ Chop Shop: We’ve featured Savoy and their latest project called Tomorrow Today, Pt. 1. If you copped a ticket on time, you’re definitely in for a good show.

The Dream – 2/25 @ The Metro: Maybe you messed up on Valentine’s day and didn’t send that special person flowers or candy to the job. Or maybe the sidepiece doesn’t feel enough love from you. Whatever the case may be, The Dream at The Metro can certainly fix those feelings. Don’t play ya’self again, tickets are still available!

Another House Party – 2/25 @ Beauty Bar: Bring your 90’s gear and best “running man” skills to Beauty Bar on Saturday. You won’t regret it!

Stix Presents Jam Night – 2/26 @ Schuba’s: The awesome thing about this monthly party is that you’ll never know who comes out. Last month Chance made an appearance. Maybe two months in a row? Only way to find out is by heading over to Schuba’s. Tickets are here.
