The Spot, Saturday, July 16 with Peligrosa All-Stars and Que Bajo?!

The Spot, which opened last week, is throwing parties Wednesday through Saturday until July 30, and we were there last Saturday to capture the shindig with Peligrosa All-Stars and Que Bajo?! Located in Openhouse Gallery (openhousegallery.org) in Nolita, the programming comes courtesy of Latino culture mag Remezcla (remezcla.com), and they have arranged one hot lineup.

Starting at 7pm tonight, teams of two artists do visual battle, creating works on tablets that will be projected onto the walls for your enjoyment (check out some of the contestants' pieces here). Then at 9pm, Roots supremo ?uestlove takes to the wheels of steel. You need to R.S.V.P. by 4pm today (reservations for events on Friday and Saturday close a day prior) to have a chance of getting in, but your spot is not guaranteed. We recommend arriving early since the capacity is limited to 250, but as our colleague once remarked, if you're not waiting in line in NYC, you're doing something wrong. And gaining admittance snags you two free beers (which cost $6 each, beyond your two freebies)—and that's certainly not wrong.

Check out the full lineup of parties, but we highly recommend getting your ass down there for a screening of Downtown Calling with DJs Johnny Dynell and Sal Principato (July 27), as well as the closing party, where you can boogie down with Mexican Institue of Sound and Nacotheque (July 30).
