Hip-hop lessons, Miami Horror and strictly business

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

Not all nights out at a bar or club need to involve hardcore dance-floor grindage, but it usually just ends up that way. We’re primal creatures that I assume have been dropping it low since the Paleolithic era. I can’t know for sure. I bailed on freshman anthro after I realized that I’d have to learn the names of every bone in a human hand, so I’m basing this information on The Flintstones. Fred and Wilma got down. Here are three nights to get in touch with your ancient inclination to do the snake:

Til-Two Club (4746 El Cajon Blvd. in City Heights) is giving everyone a lesson in hip-hop at A Brief History of Rhyme, a night dedicated to old-school rap and hip-hop. Four DJs will serve as the professors in a class that studies some of the raddest lyricists in the game, like EPMD, A Tribe Called Quest and Nas. This is a night for the urban-music purist. Pre-fade with some Fuzzy Navel Boones Farm and head over at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8. You’re allowed to be drunk in this class.

With a name like Miami Horror, you’d think it’s a gaudy, Versace-clad crabcore band performing a DJ set at Quality Social (789 Sixth Ave., Downtown) on Thursday, Aug. 9. But, no, it’ll be the Australian electronic group, best known for their synth-pop dance jam “Sometimes,” at the turntables. Joining them are DJs Gabe Vega and Robin Roth. As a result, there’ll be the usual swarm of partiers in neon outfits making sexy faces at the nightlife photog at this party.

If you’re not partied out by the time Saturday, Aug. 11, rolls around, check out Strictly Business at The Office (3936 30th St. in North Park). EdRoc and Kanye Asada (puns!) will play a smorgasbord of styles: pop, rap, indie, Motown and so on. That means you can bring those co-workers with whom you have nothing in common. Office party at The Office!
