Interplanetary wonder Erykah Badu, who will be in town to perform at Outside Lands on Aug. 12, will help local promotion outfit Ankh Marketing celebrate its seventh anniversary the same night, performing a DJ gig under her alias Lo Down Loretta Brown.
Brown made her official DJ debut in December in Dallas, but those who follow her on Twitter
have been known to be treated to a virtual form of her spinning, usually consisting of hours of YouTube links of popular and forgotten rap and soul jams and gems. She's also entered the mixtape game this week, though, as a host and not a DJ, fronting a new set
from Brooklyn's Gods'Illa.
The Aug. 12 gig begins at 9 p.m. with local DJ D Sharp
. Admission is $20; for more info, call 625-8880 or visit the Mezzanine site
