I Mostri Release Party: Head over to San Lorenzo to catch Rome’s own I Mostri. This group is pretty great: they write their own quirky lyrics, in Italian, about life in Rome (and Americans in Campo de’ Fiori). As they describe themselves on their Facebook page, they are “explosive in all respects… giving a pure adrenaline rush, literally spawning from proto-punk and ska.” This concert will showcase works from their new album, La Gente Muore di Fame. Two other groups will be performing as well.
Where: Locanda Atlantide – Via dei Lucani, 22
When: 9:30 PM
Cost: €5
For more info check out the Facebook invite.

Saturday May 19th:

In case you aren’t partaking in Rome’s Notte dei Musei, or if you want to boogie after checking out some art, I suggest:
Deep Ink
: As the tagline for this event describes, “London, that great garbage dump where all the loafers and idlers of the empire irresistibly flow.” What’s that mean? Well-known British DJ Simon Baker is in Rome and will be spinning deep house and techno. Four other DJs will also be performing both indoors and outdoors, which is pretty cool! Yay summer!
Where: Circolo degli Illuminati – Via Libetta, 1
When: Midnight- 6:30 AM
Cost: €10 with drink
For more info check out the Facebook invite.
