BPRB Updates: 420 Afropop!

February 13, 2009

New events on the “Bored People Are Boring” things to-do list

More good stuff this week,  but very pleased to see Afro/Indie poppers Extra Golden coming to town soon… on Four-Twenty noless!  Is there any culture that likes appropriated african rhythms more than weed-lovin’ hippies?  God knows I’ve seen them try to dance to it before when they played at Millenium Park last summer.  It was a scary site, maaaaan.

Vzspandexxx

In a concept as classy as their name, adorable DJ tandem Rocktapussy (Jessica “A-Cup” Gonyea and Chess “Mother” Hubbard) are hosting SPANDEXXX! at Sonotheque later this month with He Say She Say and Silverghost.  (Don’t bother trying to read the font on the flier).

So… um, if you’re dressed in 70% or more spandex you get in free.  If you RSVP at UR Chicago, you get in for 5$.  You can also win free tix by using brain power over at Venus Zine.

Considering what a Spandex ensemble will cost you at American Apparel (and all the friends you’ll lose in the process), I’ll take the 5$.  Also please note; while accessories will make your outfit “pop”, be careful not to over-do it and drop below the 70% spandex requirement.
