— There will be only one mystery on Friday at Refuge: Can the sound system handle South London dubstep duo Mala and Coki’s sub-bass? I2013’s “2 Much Chat” doesn’t nearly live up to mid-aughts classics like Mala’s “Bury The Bwoi” or Coki’s “Night” (I just went there, sorry), but these two are dubstep pioneers. Pay your respects by paying your admission to the dusty—but certainly still busy—Museum of Wobble. (9 pm, $12, 21+)

On Friday at the Rose’s Trifecta party, he’s joined by tech-house producer Mason Fisher and resident DJ Wiggles. (9 pm, $3, 21+)

— Just because it happens every month doesn’t mean it’s not worth recommending. Go and get your 2 Pac (or Biggie!) on at Booty Bassment, Saturday at Holocene. (9 pm, $10, 21+)
