Rucker: lord of the Ring.
A few weeks ago, our old pal Rucker announced he was dive-bombing the mid-week slot at Enormous Room. "I'm taking back Tuesday!" he IM'd us, and just like that, a name for the night was minted. Many of you know Mr. Rucker from his column in the fishwrap and his stint as FNX's local music guy. Now employed by an evil, monolithic megacorporate media collosus, he keeps his conscience clean by returning to the decks to spin . . . well, frankly, we have no idea what he's spinning, although he's rumored to have a couple of exclusive mixes in his record bag (if you're into AFI remixes, do not sleep). He's also bringing with him DJ Carbo, the man with the most powerful iPod in Boston. (This is a guy who, just for fun, would show up at a brit-pop night to play tracks from an oasis record that even their manager hasn't heard yet . . . uh, hypothetically speaking, of course.) Expect a crowd comrising hardcore thugs, famous athletes, label stoolies, indie hipsters, and maybe (just maybe) the most famous little sister on Geffen? The line forms in Central Square tonight beginning at around 10 pm.
