Elizabeth).Pancake Party — Title Namdi’s Pancake House— is a tribute to the DIY venue he and his brother ran in the basement of their parents’ house in the 2010s. A band was playing while the brothers served pancakes. In this iteration, pancakes are provided by Babycakes and coffee is provided by Dark Matter. In fact, Dark Matter has released a special edition of his Nnamdï blend. At 7pm, the night kicks off with Nnamdï’s new album playing, followed by a chair-taking round hosted by Nnamdï himself. Then comes Paper Mice, Ryan the Person DJ, and some sort of variety hour (ugh!). All ages can enjoy it for free, but pre-registration is required. (MC)
