Black Taxi’s shows are a party, and the party had started even before the band was formed in Brooklyn in 2007—singer Ezra Huleatt and bassist Krisana Soponpong met at a rave in Thailand, found drummer Jason Holmes after a show, and then invited Soponpong’s friend Bob Mayo to complete the foursome. Things started to kick in after their sophomore effort We Don’t Know Any Better (2012), which took them on a long U.S. tour. Their latest, the solid 2013 EP Chiaroscuro, confirms they’re not just another “electropop” band; they can get funky, dancey, and at times offer a weird hybrid between Kraftwerk and Pink Floyd. A sophomore full-length produced by Aaron Nevezie (The Black Keys, Danger Mouse) is reportedly in the works. Gearing up for a SXSW showcase, Black Taxi lands at 502 with support from Brothertiger, Sphynx and Islands & Tigers.

In addition to its 20th anniversary, Southtown’s own SAY Sí has a lot to celebrate. Launched in 1994 under the King William Neighborhood Association’s umbrella, the nonprofit has evolved from a modest operation serving 12 students to a full-time “creative youth development organization” with an enrollment of 200, community outreach benefiting upwards of 3,000 and a new game design program in the works. Not surprisingly, SAY Sí’s signature fundraiser Small Scale Works for a Larger Cause has followed this growth curve, expanding from an auction with 26 participants to a full-blown affair gathering works by 200-plus local, regional and national artists. While the main event doesn’t take place until March 21, avid collectors can jump the gun with the “buy it now” option at Thursday’s private preview and awards ceremony or First Friday’s free reception. Promising “a spectrum of one-of-a-kind art pieces ranging from abstract sculptures to hyper-realistic portraits and photography,” this year’s Small Scale features contributions from Diana Kersey, Hannah Dreiss, Kent Rush, Vikki Fields, Susan Budge, Steven Daluz and Nemo, to name but a few.
