Tonight brings the latest in our Drop-In Sessions series with DJ Cutler at Merge (439 Delaware Ave, 10pm, $5, all ages), this month featuring the “carnivorous space-funk” of Universe Shark, which we’ll drop in to jam with the ever-versatile Cutler, thus making new friends as this pair of performers has yet to meet. We’ll have information on hand for Drop-In Nation Education, which will soon announce a major expansion in their work serving out of school youth as well as unemployed or underemployed adults.
One clear common ground shared by Cutler and U-Shark is their love of the Beatles – in this clip of a concert at Nietzsche’s, U-Shark covers the Fab Four’s “Taxman,” which is one of the highlights of Cutler and Scott Down’s celebrated “Ultimate Breaks and Beatles” mix.
We’ve got a mashup of our own planned for tonight, live onstage between these two eminently funky performers – join us tonight at Merge and see how it goes down!
