LA Riots at 7 p.m. on Wednesday on The Arts Quad

DJ and producer Daniel Linton, known to fans as the man behind Los Angeles-based EDM project LA Riots, is no stranger to danger. This summer, he skydived into his DJ-set at Montauk’s “Day and Night” festival. More recently, he dared contribute a track to the summer’s most thoroughly mediocre film, Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Now, he will brave a trip upstate to headline Wednesday’s Arts Quadrager. Riot gear is optional. — Sam Bromer ’16

MILO, Riley Lake, Sammus, Sapience at 8 p.m. on Tuesday at 1013 W. State St.

Instead of hitting another house in Collegetown on Tuesday, make your way down to 1013 W. State S.t, also known as the Just Be the Cause Center and the former Ithaca Paint Building. Ithaca Underground, one of many local music organizations in Ithaca has assembled a hip-hop lineup for the night that looks pretty promising. Both Sammus and Sapience are Ithaca natives, and Sammus has already had gigs opening for artists like Raekwon and Open Mike Eagle and was recently featured in an indie music spotlight by Around the Way Hip Hop. So make your way down to the Commons for a night while it’s still warm out and get familiar with your resident local artists. You will (probably) be happy you did. — Arielle Cruz ’15

Soul Mates is streaming online until the end of August on The Readers’ Theatre’s Website

Written and directed by The Readers’ Theatre’s own Ann Marie Cummings, Soul Mates is a play about the meeting of love and technology. It’s also about the meeting of Paul and Evette, a television actor and book editor respectively, who meet online. But what may be the best part of this new play is that you don’t even have to leave your room to enjoy it. As part pf the theater’s Summer Play Program, Soul Mates can be watched on the Readers’ Theatre website ( until the end of August. A 10 dollar donation is suggested, but not required.  So next time you queue up your Netflix, a.k.a tonight, take a minute to check out this play. —  Arielle Cruz ’15
