On Flavorpill: Events Today in NYC, SF, LA, and CHI


We’re back with your daily reminder of cool events happening tonight across the Flavorpillaverse. So now you have no excuse for staying in tonight. If you’d rather have this information delivered straight to your inbox each Tuesday, sign up for our Flavorpill City Guides.

If you’re in New York: This compulsive 1982 documentary shuttles between footage of Fela Kuti’s infectious performances at his Afrika Shrine and interviews in which the “prophet” sounds off on multinationals, the “spiritual life” of music, and Nigeria’s militaristic regime.

If you’re in LA: The early buzz surrounding intercontinental duo Bass Science references an array of electronica offshoots, including dubstep, glitch-hop, IDM, and techno bass.

If you’re in San Francisco: Today, Dave Eggers reads from and discusses the people and places in Zeitoun, a piece of non-fiction set in post-Katrina New Orleans, with book sale proceeds benefiting 826 Valencia.

If you’re in Chicago: Like many other movies, Paper Heart is about true love, why it occurs, and if it exists at all. Unlike other movies, Flavorpill is screening it for you for free, tonight!
