Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

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.

No Blocktober Fest? (According to the chat) If that's true you will have made my month!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I hate, hate, hate, hate those damn festivals, and I live six blocks away.
