DJ Vadim, Barisone, Spekt 1
[DJ/HIP HOP] Straight outta Leningrad, Russian DJ Vadim is perhaps the greatest proponent of hip-hop ever to emerge from the former Soviet Union. Since the mid-’90s, the producer born Andrey Gurov has been showcasing just how far rap culture has spread, touring the world with his hard-hitting, Space Age beats, which he’s used to remix everyone from Public Enemy and the Roots to Stevie Wonder and Paul Weller. He’s clearly not a purist: While hip-hop is the backbone of his work, Vadim blends it with liberal amounts of electronica, soul, dub and trip-hop. Next-level shit? Vadim’s been on it for years. MATTHEW SINGER. Rotture, 315 SE 3rd Ave., 234-5683. 9 pm. $8. 21kknd.

All You Can Eat Spaghetti and Meatball Sunday

[EATIN'] A whole 10 hours of meatballs. Wear your stretchy pants and leave your self-respect at home. 24th and Meatballs, 2329 NE Glisan St., 282- 2557. 11 am-9 pm. $12.

Mad About the Mai Tai
[DRINKIN'] Learn way more about the mai tai than you thought was possible at this drink-centric event. It may leave you enlightened and saying Maita’i (“good” in Tahitian). Or it may leave you slurring and sick of rum. Hale Pele, 2733 NE Broadway. 5 pm. $40. 21kknd.

Samothrace, Vassafor, Knelt Rote, Burials
[THRASHIN'] The only thing in 2012 sadder than Pallbearer’s Sorrow and Extinction was Samothrace canceling its tour with Pallbearer. While Pallbearer took the world by storm last year, Seattle’s Samothrace continued its slow-burning simmer, churning out bleak, turgid doom on the longawaited Reverence to Stone. Before Renata Castagna’s guitar leads bring you to tears tonight, you’ll be subjected to an opening set from Burials, which now features “Fester” from Humors (née Mongoloid Village) on second axe. And did I mention Vassafor is a black-metal band from New Zealand? Bet that got your attention. NATHAN CARSON. Rotture, 315 SE 3rd Ave., 234-5683. 9 pm. $8. 21kknd.
