  • Music


    In the vein of controversial producer AraabMuzik, enigmatic Persian-American trap DJ/producer Asadi (Daniel Asadi) exists as more than an MPC button masher. As a curator of his heritage, the 22-year-old Ohioan first began producing at 16, sampling his parents’ old cassette tapes and filling his loops with 808 drums. “Throne” became a Spotify hit in 2016. Latest single “Goldie” dropped last month.

    L'oca d'oro: Big Night

    What a great idea! Chef Fiore Tedesco is cooking up a sumptuous Italian feast inspired by that Stanley Tucci foodie movie from the Nineties. Every table will get their own personal recreation of Il Timpano, the baked "kitchen sink" dish with meatballs & sausage in a pastry shell. Plus, this unique pastapalooza will be accompanied by live music – those Lucky Strikes going all Louis Prima for you – and optional wine pairings. And, OMG, for dessert, it's the one-night-only return of L'oca d'oro's own addition to the pantheon of outlandish Italian food, "The S'mores Tartufo," a tower of gelato, marshmallow brûlée, hazelnut graham cracker, and chocolate sauce.
    Thu., Nov. 29, 5-10pm. $75-125.
