The Whitney's "Blues for Smoke" exhibition, which encourages a broad-minded, avant-garde-leaning view of the blues, backs a weekend's worth of performances, including sets from former Das Racist members Kool A.D. and Heems (Apr 5 and 7, respectively). Also on board are queer rap sensation LE1F (Apr 7) and highly entertaining cross-dressing poet and MC Mykki Blanco (Apr 5). See whitney.org for a full schedule of events.
