MUSIC—Eric D. Johnson, formerly of Fruit Bats, has some damned impeccable taste, so let him curate your evening at A Few of My Favorite Things. The recurring event enlists a local shaker to pick their favorite artists to showcase, and EDJ signed up Corrina Repp and Rebecca Gates, alongside films and DJ sets—all to benefit XRAY.FM. CF

MUSIC—Auto-Tune should be as dead as the Doors by now, but Atlanta rapper Future brought new life to it. His album Honest is a wide-ranging, ambitious record that ties hiphop, rap, R&B, pop, and much more into a soulful, immersive experience—perhaps it's redundant to say Future's the sound of the future, but he might very well be.
