May 22-28, 2003
This week boasts a nice little triple play. Heres the big three in no order whatsoever.
Klasik Sundayz. We like the sound of that. And we also like the unique, laid-back voice of Sadat X (of the Brand Nubians). Supporting Mr. X is Craig G, Reef the Lost Cauze and Face the Arketek. DJ Shorty Blak flips true hip-hop on the ones and twos. Ficky. Ficky. Sun., May 25, 8 p.m., $8-$10, Dowling's Place, Broad and Thompson sts.,email@example.com
for ticket information. (Yes, this is a show -- not a one- or two-song performance after the artist shows up two and a half hours late.)
The May edition of Current hosts none other than Mr. Len at Silk City. (See left.) Tue., May 27, 9 p.m.-2 a.m., $7, Silk City, Fifth and Spring Garden sts., 215-592-8838.
OK, shall we pick the bangin-est party of the week? The Blue Light Special delivers it with old school, new school and everything in between. From house to hip-hop, DJs Mr. Cisum (applause, applause) and Bill Profit spin hot, delicious vinyl platters into the wee hours of the morn. And while theyre dishing the music, the waitstaff will fill your plate with real grub. Take your pick, is it going to be pancakes and some Boogie Down Productions? Or perhaps it will be some Biggie, a grilled cheese and an apple martini (there are two bars on premises). Its the ultimate after-after-party with the cool out starting at 2 a.m. And the upstairs movers and shakers stay krunk till 3 a.m. Hosting the night away is the impeccable Soul-One alongside Time Management Productions. Thu., May 22, 10 p.m.-3 a.m., Parkway Diner, 20th and Arch sts.
