DeKalb’s weekender’s list for Feb. 25

By Chris Krapek

DeKALB | It’s the last weekend of February and it’s snowy again. Don’t go home.

Here are the things you should be doing in DeKalb this weekend:

What: “One Foot In and One Foot Back”

Where: Stevens Building Corner Theatre

When: Friday. Saturday, 10:30 p.m.

How much: $3

Why: Yesterday you read about this one-act play from senior theatre major Carolyn Guido. Tonight, you should go see it. The play is about one woman coming to terms with her addiction to men and relationships after having several affairs in Europe. Not only is this show at the cool time of 10:30 p.m., it’s an original work written and put on by our peers. This is the sort of thing you should take advantage of while here. 

What: Legend Haz It

Where: Otto’s, 118 E. Lincoln Highway (+21)

When: 8:30 p.m. Saturday

How much: $7

Why: They’ve had a movie made about them. They dropped an album. They’ve opened for T-Pain. They play in barns. They play at house parties. Legend Haz It is all over DeKalb. The seven-member band, fronted by MC Keith “Legend Mane” Winford isn’t genre specific — they combine anecdotal hip-hop with jazzy brass, and even then, there’s more stuff going on. These dudes have got to be graduating soon, so check them out before it’s too late. Also on the show are Chicagoland bands Train Company and Mathien.

What: Battle of the DJs

Where: Starbusters, 930 Pappas Dr. (+21)

When: 10 p.m. Saturday

How much: ?

Why: Okay, seriously, get the bros out, we’re going to Busters. At this battle, DJs who have previously never performed at the bar will each have a 30-minute set. They’ll be judged on quality, crowd response and perhaps the most important one indicative of talent, how many people mention their name at the door. I’m sure this will be pretty awesome, but please limit the amount of dubstep and deadmau5 allowed.

What: Big Sean

Where: The Convocation Center

When: 11 p.m. Saturday

How much: $15, $10 for students who live in on campus

Why: This show is being billed as “the biggest Convocation party ever.” That’s a pretty bold proclamation. Seemingly unknown to a majority of people on campus, rapper Big Sean will hit the stage at the fantastic time of 1:30 a.m. Also appearing is Nathan “NaPalm” Palmer, Legend Haz It’s Winford and in between acts, there will be a dance with music from DJ ARIS. So go, see for yourself if this show really beats out Staind’s performance here in 2004 as “biggest Convocation party ever.”  Plus, tickets are on sale until 2 a.m., so you can do whatever you’re doing for hours before you even have to go!
