Dance away any mid-winter blues with the electronic hip-hop stylings of Joshua Paul Davis (a.k.a DJ Shadow). Fun fact: His 1996 debut album broke a Guinness World Record as the first album created entirely from samples, and it’s featured on Rolling Stone’s list of 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Let’s try and break our own record that night: most fun had on a Tuesday ever. (I’ll get Guinness on the horn, STAT!)
When: January 23
