1.26-28: Cort McCown

“Married guys can fart. That’s huge. When you’re single and go out on a date, you have to sit there and suck in that fart for 3-and-a-half g*dd*mn hours. It’s uncomfortable, man! Girls, you think we’re being nice when we open car door for you? As soon as we shut the door, we just s**t our pants as we walk around the car. Watch his face — he’s crop-dusting.” — Cort McCown at Gotham Comedy Club

Karl Strauss Tasting Room, Pacific Beach, karlstrauss.com/events/changing-of-the-barrels

1.27: Lookas

He’s worked with the likes of Flo Rida and Diplo, but it was remixing the 2013 DVBBS & Borgeous single, Tsunami, that put DJ Lookas (aka Lucas Rego) on the map. Rego closed 2017 by releasing a new single, Alarm, with sibling DJ duo Krewella. — Scott McDonald

@ Bassmnt, bassmntsd.com

1.27: Crankdat

Twenty-year-old Ohio-based DJ Crankdat (aka Christian Smith) infamously gave up a full-ride athletic scholarship at Kent State when he dropped out of school to DJ. Terrible decision? Smith spent 2017 touring the world and releasing singles with T-Pain (In The Air) and Jauz (I Hold Still feat. Slushii). So… maybe it wasn’t. — Scott McDonald
