THIS AND THAT
Two questions worth posing during the next few weeks, the period when, after 12 years away, the annual Red Bull Music Academy returns to the city: Of all the great upcoming shows and lectures, which ones should I make a point of catching, and what does it mean that so much independent and avant-garde music is underwritten by an energy drink company? For the former, we recommend tonight’s “That!” showcase at Williamsburg’s Glasslands Gallery, where Le1f and recent Voice cover star Mykki Blanco rap circles around everyone in attendance, with DJ sets from Laurel Halo and Venus X. As for the latter, you’ll have to figure that out for yourself.
