Best Place to Hear Death Grips and Van Halen Back to Back

Nu Nu Fridays at La Cocina

There’s a riot going on down at La Cocina one Friday per month. Nu Nu Fridays, a music night started up by DJs Ernesto “E_Rupt” Vega and Erin Wilbur (who sadly recently left us for Milwaukee), is the place to be to hear the new sounds of today. E_Rupt and rotating special-guest DJs play tracks from artists as disparate as Grimes, oOoOO, The Coathangers, Blondes, Van Halen, John Maus, Dr. John, Rye Rye, and The Drums—the catch being that no tracks from before 2010 are allowed. You can dance, or you can fold your arms across your chest and ponder life; either way, you’re going to hear amazing new music.
