The week in nightlife: Jan. 10 - Jan. 16, Das Racist, Baltimore burlesque, and the Ravens's "World War III"
Here is your guide to the week in nightlife: joke-rap, Tim Burton tributes, and free parties, all before an epic three-day weekend and a totally low-key football game that some people, oh, are just calling "World War III."
On Thursday, joke-rap duo Das Racist and hype man Dap play Sonar. They will be disappointed to know, as I was, there's precious few Taco Bells in the city, much less one combined with a Pizza Hut. Also, so far: no reported problems at BWI.
Friday is a chilly night. Celebration's Katrina Ford spins at Cullen Stalin's second Ice Age party at Club Phoenix. $2 after 11 p.m. The Seldon Plan will perform at their new album's release party at Metro Gallery. And at Power Plant Live, Angels Rock Bar hosts a Tim Burton tribute party.
On Saturday, hit your favorite Ravens bar for the epic Steelers game. Elliott's Pour House has $2 domestics. Or, for a totally difference scene, Sticky Buns burlesque presents Infernoland at the Windup Space, named way before Terrell Suggs called the Steelers game the Ravens' "Armageddon." $13 cover.
On Sunday the legendary Afrika Bambaataa perform at U Street Music Hall. And remember, no work the next day.
