If youâre in the know, Praliciven is an exclusive concept at Black Book on Thursday with Miracles Club, DJ Zack, SPF666 and Commune. Casual partygoers be forewarned: Those without the right connections or a âfuturistic nude/pastel costumeâ may be turned back onto the Old Town streets. (9 pm, $10, 21+)
Underground house and techno raver OG Frankie Bones may be slowly making his way into the mainstream, but somehow his show on Saturday at AudioCinema snuck right under my radar until only recently. Itâs $30, but the rave vibes are in full effect: Prizes will be given to the PLUR-est attendees. (8 pm, $30, 18+)
Rabit has been forcibly relocating the home of grime from Bow, London to Houston, Texas. His ice-cold deconstructions on last yearâs pair of EPs, Double Dragon and Sun Showers, push grimeâs decentralized beats to their most esoteric limits, but still manages to pull something beautiful out of his hat. See him on Wednesday at Holocene. (9 pm, free before 10 pm, $5 after, 21+)
