Haunted Hip-Hop

The Saturday before Halloween is a big night for live music. If you’re into glitzy parties, you can spend Oct. 29 hanging at LAX with Ice-T and Coco or getting “Low” with Flo-Rida at Haze. But if you want to sooth your soul, you should check out local hip-hop band Rhyme N Rhythm’s (pictured) funkdafied Halloween bash at Revolution Lounge in The Mirage. Since forming back in 2007, the four MCs, female bass player, keyboardist and drummer have been buzzing in the underground local scene. They give an energetic stage show and boast a “Hip-Hop Funk Soul” sound, which might explain their nickname, the Soul Glo All-Stars. To thank the local hip-hop community for their support, RNR will provide an unlimited guest list and a $500 costume contest.

Architectural Striptease

By Cynthia Behr Warso

Scott Carter’s solo show, Affect/Effect, lays bare the bones of the Contemporary Arts Center. The 27-year-old Chicago-based artist has peeled away, sawn and cut the gallery walls, exposing pipe, plywood and two-by-fours. Unlike the detritus of an ordinary demolition site, the removed drywall—cut into geometric shapes like jigsaw puzzle pieces—is then sandwiched together to create furniture, such as chairs or bedposts (Carter’s grandfather was a furniture maker). The result is a visual seduction that addresses the mood of Las Vegas in the wake of the housing collapse.
