Show/Event Picks of the Week: 11.18.09

My apologies for being a couple of days late…I sometimes forget that my city doesn’t sleep, even when I decide to do so…

If you went to Top $ Raz’s video shoot for “DEAD,” The Roc Raida tribute at SOB’s or the last Roots Jam Session @ Highline Ballroom (hopefully not FOREVER!), then you started off the week right! Here’s the rundown for the remainder of the week:

Wednesday, 11.18.09

Thursday, 11.19.09

The 10th installment of Femme Fatale Jam Sessions, hosted by Kalae All Day goes down tomorrow evening! There will also be a special clothing swap (thanks to Kalae for making my idea happen!), so ladies, bring all the clothes, shoes and accessories you no longer wear and barter away!

(taken from the Femme Fatale Jam Sessions Event page on Facebook:)

As for the CLOTHING SWAP please POST your sizes up here or send them to me ( so I can make sure there’s more than just you with your size at the event. Also try to bring accessories and other things that are one size fits all. There is no min or max to how many things you can bring and its up to you to barter how you please-there are no rules or guidelines (ie; trade shoes for shoes-u can trade shoes for a sweater and a pair of earrings-who knows) Its all up to the barterer–ALSO anything left over that you don’t feel like slugging back home you can leave with me and Ill make sure to take it to Salvation Army! Donating is very fulfilling- I must say to all you fellow packrats, stop STORING and start DONATING-you dont need EVERYTHING!

That being said, there will be lovely VEGAN FOOD (pot luck style- email what you’re thinking of bringing, good music, great performances and HIGH VIBES!


(I went last week with a couple of friends and had a blast! The music was OFFICIAL, and the b-boys took it to the floor in a dance cypher!)
