Tips for Today: Q-Tip's New Party in NYC + The Jesus and Mary Chain in L.A. + Aziz Ansari in Chicago + the Lovebox Festival in London

New York

Turn off your cellphones and for goodness sake stop tweeting, as New York hip-hop legend Q-Tip launches his new monthly party tonight at Irving Plaza, Offline. If there is one thing we know about Mr. Tip, is that he throws one heckofa party. [via Brooklyn Vegan]

Time for a good night out: head over to The Goodwin, a new restaurant opening today in the West Village that will bring some tavern-like farm grub (i.e. "Pigs in a Blanket") to the neighborhood all while exuding a comfy bar atmosphere featuring a beer/wine/sake program from the folks at The Lion.

Rag & Bone, or as we like to call it, "the rich man's Steven Alan," is having a big ol' sale at the Chelsea Market, with men's and women's wear up to 60% off -- that means jeans in the $100 department, shoes in the $200 range and dresses for about $125. [via Racked]

Have some chill times tonight at Marissa Nadler's show at Union Hall. The Boston-based chanteuse will be singing tunes off her pared down, lovelorn, recently-released record The Sister. [Oh My Rockness]

Amidst all the concerts and film screenings at the Northside Festival, there's an opportunity to learn practical information that may help you build a business. The Northside Entrepreneurship Festival converts a 40,000 square foot factory in Williamsburg into a conference hall that boasts 40 panels on innovation, design and software development. Today's "The Business of Brooklyn" panel, featuring Charlie O'Donnell of Brooklyn Bridge Ventures and Jason Goodman of 3rd Ward, focuses on those who have successfully started their own companies in the city's biggest growing borough.

Spend the night with Bond, James Bond, as you watch a triple feature of the classic films at the Egyptian Theatre. You can't go wrong with a triple dose of Sean Connery in The Man With the Golden Gun, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. [Flavorpill]


Screen shot 2012-06-13 at 2.25.34 PM.pngAziz Ansari, who graced PAPER's "Beautiful People" cover in 2011, will be bringing his hilariousness to the Chicago Theatre tonight. His stand-up tends to focus on what is going on in the busy man's life and given how fast his fame has skyrocketed, we're sure he has plenty of amusing stories to share. [Oh My Rockness

Get in touch with your inner artist at tonight's Prints and Pints event at the Hyde Park Art Center. Artist Elke Claus will teach you how to screen-print your own T-shirts -- or any other fabrics for that matter. Post-printing, sip on drinks from the cash bar and browse the artwork in the galleries as you jam to tunes from the DJ. [Flavorpill]
