We New Yorkers have so many musical legends living among us that we’ve become a spoiled bunch. So the new party featuring François K, Deep Space, hasn’t been hyped too heavily, probably because we’re so used to him. (Don’t you know how the house-heads overseas would just kill to see him every week?) However, don’t take things for granted! The former Body & Soul jock spins Jamaican and modern dub till the wee hours at the cozy, new Cielo spot. And it’s on Monday, the most low-key day of the week, guaranteed to keep the filler away. Monday @ 9, Cielo, 18 Little W 12th, 212-645-5700, deepspacenyc.com.
There are few women who inspire so much they warrant annual tribute nights, but Stevie Nicks—the lace, the leather, the cocaine habits of yore—seems to do just that. Even Courtney Love and the Dixie Chicks are fascinated with her. She’s the right combo of mystical and mysterious, plus she sings about Gypsies, all perfect fodder for the Night of 1,000 Stevies, the annual gala put on by Mother. All I can think, though, is poor, unloved Christy McVeigh. Friday @ 9, Don Hill’s, 511 Greenwich, 212-219-2850.
Foundation and Frank 151 present a very eclectic lineup for the next edition of Pockit Rockit (not surprising, really, since the former is known for techno, the latter for hip-hop). So-called “junkyard junglists” Ming & FS headline a lineup rounded out by some slutty new-wave/electro (Electrocute/Crème Blush), groovy soul (DJ Language), techno (Kimyon), and hip-hop (Apollo Heights). Perfecto. Saturday @ 10, Centro-Fly, 45 W 21st, 212-627-7770.
