Hey Mr. DJ
Need to shake off the sight of two trains crashing and the anger over a selfish act causing so much pain and loss? Yeah, we do too. Thankfully, Pete Rock -- easily one of the 5 best hip hop DJs to ever command the ones and twos -- will be at The Conga Room tonight.

If begging for your boogie down isn't your thing, head over to Little Temple as Proper brings DJ Yam Who? to town (free before 10 and only $5 after). Yam Who? has been re-working nu-soul faves like John Legend, Amp Fiddler, Raphael Saadiq and our favorites, Zero 7, for a little bit and his show promises to be hot.
