Just Blaze 

10 p.m. Saturday, April 14. Lola, 500 North 14th Street.

Hip-hop super-producer Just Blaze was slated to DJ as part of Lola's "Speakerboxx" series on March 30 but ended up having to cancel — instead we were treated to a visit from another giant of the field: the venerable Pete Rock. Making good, Blaze rescheduled his performance for this Saturday. If you've followed hip-hop at all in the last fifteen years, you know the man's work — he's produced tracks for the Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, T.I., MF Doom, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Usher, Eminem...he even remixed a Maroon 5 song back in 2008, creating what was, in this writer's opinion, the only listenable Maroon 5 song ever.

Round of Applause for Lola: In the last few months, the downtown nightclub has brought some pretty big names in for its DJ nights: Salt-N-Peppa's Spindarella in January, the aforementioned Pete Rock last month and now Mr. Blaze.
