Phat N Jazzy, the boundary-pushing hip-hop night that used to grace the Social every week, may no longer be a regular thing, but its annual birthday party has become something to look forward to. This year, local institution DJ BMF brings in Questlove – normally known for providing the beat on the drums for the Roots – for a two-night DJ engagement kicking off Tuesday, April 4. Questlove’s DJ sets often show off his encyclopedic knowledge of hip-hop history with plenty of deep cuts that play right into the established laid-back feel of prime Phat N Jazzy grooves. And even though Questlove may be in town with Jimmy Fallon, it’s cool to pretend that he came in just for this gig.
