ToDo ToDay: Wu-Tang Wednesdays! Forward Festival!
Yo, if you follow the Wu-Tang Clan on Facebook you know that certain days of the week are already reserved for specific categories: Tuesdays are for “Wu-Mamis,” under-30 females of various ethnic backgrounds who take selfies while wearing Wu-Tang T-shirts. Wednesdays are for music, which is the Wu-Tang Clan’s core competency. So it’s subculturally appropriate that the Satellite Room is hosting its own Wu-Tang Wednesdays. Now, instead of hearing some obscure U-God cut on your computer while eating corn chips, you can go to the Satellite Room and share in some communal Wu-ness.
