Super Bowl

There aren't really many exciting shows tonight, considering most people are probably getting together with their friends, filling up on chips, dip, beer, and watching The Patriots play The Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX. This year's halftime show has Katy Perry (yaaaaay), and she's saying she'll bring out Missy Elliot, Lenny Kravitz and other guests.

A few NYC venues are hosting Super Bowl parties, including The Bell House, Brooklyn Bowl and Union Hall (which also has an improv comedy show with SNL writers in the other room).

Palisades has two shows today (afternoon and night), Output continues its 2-year celebration, and Cake Shop and Silent Barn have shows too.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Busta Q

Around the time Busta Rhymes came out as a guest at A Tribe Called Quest's "final" shows (opening for Kanye West at Barclays and MSG), it was announced that Busta and ATCQ's Q-Tip would be releasing a collaborative mixtape. That mixtape is out now, and features guest appearances from Kanye West, A Tribe Called Quest, Talib Kweli, Missy Elliot, Raekwon, and others. That's the artwork above, which clearly riffs on ATCQ's The Low End Theory cover art.

Q-Tip's next #Offline DJ party happens on Wednesday (12/18) at Output (tickets).

You can download the mixtape for free at LiveMixtapes and stream it below...

Missy Elliot

Missy Elliot hasn't released an album since 2005's The Cookbook, and it's looking like her much-delayed release, Block Party, will finally be seeing the light of day this year. It's becoming one of those Detox-style delayed albums, so we shouldn't get our hopes too high, but a December 18 release date has been set and she recently dropped two singles, "Triple Threat" and "9th Inning" (both featuring Timbaland), which you can stream below.

Missy is also set to make a video for "9th Inning" and if you're a dancer and you live in NYC, she wants your help with it. She's holding dance auditions and the deadline for submissions is TODAY (10/5) at 4 PM. All details on what you need to do to submit are on the flyer, which you can see below.

Maybe Missy Elliott superfan Mister Lies, who will be in NYC tonight (10/5) for a show at Cameo and sticking around for CMJ, will try out?
