Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week
In what's becoming an annual tradition, hip-hop godfather Afrika Bambaataa -- the block-party-rockin' Bronx DJ who gave us the classic "Planet Rock," set the template for electro and founded the Zulu Nation collective -- is joining a slew of local artists to raise money for the International Red Cross at an all-night dance party. The third Funk For Peace, which takes over Five Saturday from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., finds Bam paired with Thunderball, the retro '60s funk/boogaloo/exotica duo who have a new album out on Eighteenth Street Lounge Records; highly recommended funky house producers and DJs Fort Knox Five; the always-impressive All Good Funk Alliance; and DJ Rex Riddim. There's a $10 cover, and half of all proceeds go to the Red Cross. Come early, stay late.
This is just one of the after-dark recommendations you'll find in this week's Nightlife Agenda, which also finds Ludacris at Love and Marky Ramone trading his drumset for the DJ booth.
