Editors' pick



Editorial Review

Last month, the DJs behind Cafe Saint-Ex's Fuzz - an exploration of psychedelic jams, woozy electronic sounds and other label- defying genres - decided to move the party to the Velvet Lounge. It's a good thing they moved to a slightly bigger venue, because this month's party is looking epic. You'll get choice cuts from residents Neville C. (Brazilian Rhythms), Provoke (a resident at Eighteenth Street Lounge and Breadsoda) and Naraku, of course. Joining them in the Hawkwind/Shankar/Quicksilver Messenger Service love-in will be DJ Geologist, the "sound manipulator" for indie darlings Animal Collective, and Kid Congo Powers, who has played guitar for the Cramps, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and the Gun Club. It should be a head-spinning night - and that's before you see the trippy visuals projected on the bar's front windows.
