6.30 – Skip-the-line Tickets

We’ve got 50 more skip-the-line tickets available now for tomorrow night’s party at The Bell House. $15 (all in…no fees) jumps you right past the line and straight through the door to the festivities. If you can’t get any of these tickets in time, don’t worry…there will be plenty of tickets at the door. Special guests this month are #FOMOPARTY and Brent Tactic. We hope to see you all tomorrow night!



Guesting in the front room of the Bell House for the June edition of The Rub is our friends, #FOMOPARTY. Tap.10, Darling Chuck and Tha Yell0w R. KEL have created a true to life “fear of missing out” scenario with their monthly 4th Friday party at Friends And Lovers over the last several years as it’s always popping and they’ve got the IG evidence to prove it. They celebrated 3 years as a crew and party earlier this year and they’ll be making their 2nd appearance at The Rub this Saturday! Check some recent mixes from all 3 crew members and click some links on their socials for the formal follow. And don’t miss them holding down the front room this weekend for The Rub!

Our next movie showing is SCARFACE and it’s coming up quick on July 5th!

There’s no shortage of iconic films from director Brian De Palma. But 1983’s SCARFACE is its own kind cocaine-dusted brilliance, which is part of what has made it the single most influential film on hip-hop culture. Some 30 years on, this story of the vicious side of the American dream reverberates heavily throughout popular culture — so much so that it’s nearly impossible to even say this movie’s name without conjuring that singular image of Tony Montana brandishing his “little friend.”

That makes it easy to forget there is real movie here that lives up to the hype. Oliver Stone is in top form as screenwriter and director Brian De Palma paints a bloody portrait like no other. Al Pacino is absolutely magnetic as the Cuban exile who quickly moves up the ranks of a drug cartel, displacing its leader while also seducing his woman (an excellent Michelle Pfeiffer). The wealth and power come with costs, and soon Tony finds those he cared for most to be lost to him. Things just get nastier as he tries to stay at the top — and every frame of it is downright electrifying.

After the screening, join us for more music, dancing and drinking at the House of Wax!


#TBT Rub Radio – RIP Prodigy

TONIGHT, The Rub Movie Night is back at Alamo Drafthouse, with Menace II Society! Last month we recorded a mix inspired by our first movie, Belly, and we were all set to do it again this month but we realized we already have two mixes which are perfectly suited for the night, from DJ Eleven (last week) and our brother Matthew Africa (R.I.P.), which we share with you today.

About the movie:

Released 25 years ago in May of 1993, Menace II Society was the directorial debut of the Hughes Brothers (twins Allen & Albert – directors of cult classic Dead Presidents). Set in it Watts, CA, Menace tells the story of Caine (Tyrin Turner) and O-Dog’s (Larenz Tate) struggles against the racism, drugs, and violence that gripped the LA area at the time. The film stars a pre-Fresh Prince Jada Pinkett and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as an amazing roster of West Coast rappers, including MC Eiht, Too $hort, and Saafir.
