All’s quiet and calm on the event front this weekend with top events including comedian Bobby Lee, Baauer at Omnia and a San Diego Sockers home game.
12.20: Hippie Sabotage
Calif.-based sibling DJ and production duo Hippie Sabotage (aka Kevin and Jeff Saurer) are perhaps best known for remixing Swedish crooner Tove Lo’s breakthrough hit, Habits (Stay High).

12.20-22: Bobby Lee
“I was at a Starbucks, this really happened, this old man came up to me, and he goes, ‘Are you Korean?’ I got scared. I’m like, ‘Yeah.’ Then he goes, ‘I fought in the Korean War.’ I didn’t know whether to say, ‘Thank you,’ or ‘F***ing cool!’ or I don’t f***ing know, ya know? But what came out of my mouth was ‘Me too.’ Then he got mad. ‘WHAAAT!’ So I started improvising. ‘That’s my name, Mi Too.’” — Bobby Lee at the Laugh Factory.

12.21: Coast Club
DJ and production trio Trevor Shawn, Ace Future and Spencer Regan performed as WeAreTreo for years, remixing Drake’s Fake Love and Twenty One Pilots’ Ride as self-proclaimed “surfers by day, DJs by night.” But with Regan out, the L.A.-based duo of Shawn and Future released their first single under the new moniker, Coastin’ (feat. Sammy Johnson), in August. — Scott McDonald

“There is nothing more bitch-ass than a grown man as he puffs on flavored steam. Listen, you’re a man. You want to smoke, you risk cancer like a man. You don’t walk up to me puffing Cherry Jubilee for god’s sake.” — Alonzo Bodden on Historically Incorrect
