Tips for Today: SuperDuperMarket in NYC + Billy Bob Thornton in L.A. + Hannibal Buress in Chicago + Wu Legends in London

New York

So turns out, we here at Paper are hosting the coolest event this weekend. Seriously, if you love food (and who doesn't?) you absolutely must check out our massive Super Duper Market popping up today, and running through the weekend. Dozens of our favorite food purveyors from all over the country will be selling their innovative and groundbreaking nibbles. Some notable Market-eers include fashion designer Norma Kamali, who will be selling her olive oil; SF's Tartine Bakery and Boulette's Larder, who will be offering their tasty treats; and Maira Kalman and Modern Appealing Clothing, who will be peddling food-themed wares.  More info here.

After you're done stuffing your face at our food fest, head down to Brooklyn Fireproof for a music-lover's dream deal: 21 bands for only 21 dollars. At the Bushwick Walkabout Music Festival, participants get to check out bands (like Beast, Make Bomb, Xylos, Ravens and Chimes and more) all while enjoying a free beer from Sixpoint.

Take a road trip to Atlantic City tonight to go see one of the funniest comedians around (and 2011 Paper cover boy) Aziz Ansari. The jokester will be performing at the Music Box in Borgata. [NY Mag]

Los Angeles

Billy Bob Thornton has always been a man of mystery. Tonight, he'll be Egyptian Theatre where he'll be signing copies of his recently released tome, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts, a collection of ghost tales. After, overdose on all things Billy Bob at a screening of the Coen brothers' The Man Who Wasn't There and Sam Raimi's A Simple Plan, both starring Thornton. [Flavorpill]

The super-talented, SF-based MC Aesop Rock (he's been rapping for 15 years!) does his thing at the El Rey Theatre tonight. Many fans believe his most recent release, Skelethon, contains his best writing yet. [LA Weekly]

Guitar airness: the extent to which a performance transcends the imitation of a real guitar and becomes an art form in and of itself. Tonight is the tenth anniversary of the annual U.S. Air Guitar Championship, taking place at The Troubadour. The finalist gets to advance to the national competition in Denver. [LA Weekly]


Recently featured in PAPER, the rising comedian Hannibal Buress will leave you in stitches tonight at Lincoln Hall. See why Louis C.K. and Aziz Ansari are both fans of the guy. [Flavorpill]

If you're in Chicago, and you didn't know that the Pitchfork Music Festival starts today... well, we have a problem here. Tickets are sold out but that doesn't mean you can't press your face up to the gates of Union Park and listen to the sweet sounds of artists such as Feist, A$AP ROCKY, Clams Casino, and Dirty Projectors. [Oh My Rockness]


Tonight offers the rare chance to catch GZA, Raekwon, Method Man and Ghostface Killah all together on stage at The Forum for Wu Legends. The legendary Wu Tang Clanners will be playing both their solo and group classics.  [Time Out]

Tim Casson has created a unique kind of dance movement called The Dance WE Made. He travels all around London and finagles members of the public to choreograph his routines. Today Casson performs at Southbank Centre, the last stop on his tour before performing an extended dance solo combining all 20 different routines on July 20. [Flavorpill]
