I've got a whole city to hold down

February 27, 2004

Weekend picks

In the Sun-Times, DeRogatis talks with Twista, who says he wants to open a hip-hop club in the city. Jakubiak visits with Jah Safe (performing Tuesday at the Hothouse).

Live from Trib Tower, Kot chats with Erykah Badu (Saturday, Auditorium Theatre), but doesn’t ask about her reported recent split with Common or her pregnancy. Come on, Greg, we want the dirt.

Also here are Reger’s current nods (the same ones Metromix erroneously posted last week).

Reader crits tab no less than 10 shows this week, including High Llamas, Erykah Badu, Mary Lou Lord and Mountain Goats, and Mondica Kendrick weighs in on nine more bills but doesn't rip a single one. Is she losing her touch?

Lastly, in New City, Tom Lynch tips the Mountain Goats (Saturday, Empty Bottle), while Dave Chamberlain reviews some recent local shows.
