Altered States

Ex-Shamen DJ Conjures Up a New Image

March 27
Opaline, 85 Avenue A, 212-995-8684

Mutiny has returned, and I'm not referring to all the anti-war aggressions taking over the city. Sopping with South Asian breakbeat, left-field, dub, even hip-hop grooves, this party hosted by the girl around town, DJ Rekha, and Vivek Bald, a/k/a DJ Siriaki—who's just put a British documentary to bed that will appear in San Fran's International Asian Film Fest—welcomes all the residents you've missed, Anju, Navdeep (expect to see his Clinical Sessions II mix CD in the future), and Zakhm.

April 27
Tompkins Square Park, 7th Street between avenues A and B, 212-714-4987

The peeps of Blackkat (known for battling the Rave Act law) are throwing their 16th annual party in the park. Think bright skies, folks reclined on picnic blankets, sit-ting in nearby cars, or dancing to techno, compliments of Jason BK (the crew's creator), drum'n'bass by Chrome, dancehall reggae dropped by Pow Pow, and there are more DJs to be announced. So come on out, people, it's free! (Franklin)
