This week on Nothing Urgent, Derek Evers and Chris Robbins discuss the closing of Williamsburg DIY venue with Ric Leichtung and Todd P. Ric is the curator of the soon-to-be-defunct space, and Todd's involvement in the DIY music community dates back many years. Hear how Ric and Todd dealt with the myriads of the reactions surrounding the venue's close. What bands were essential to 285's final shows, and what shows throughout the space's history were Ric and Todd's favorites? Tune in to hear discussions regarding the sustainability of DIY in New York City. What separated 285 Kent from other Brooklyn DIY venues? Later, Malika Zouhali-Worrall joins the program to discuss the film she recently co-produced, directed, and wrote called Call Me Kuchu. The film follows David Kato, the first openly gay Ugandan, until his tragic murder. Hear how Ugandans reacted to the murder of David Kato, and how Malika was able to capture the sentiment in her film. How will the Anti Homosexuality Bill potentially affect Ugandans today? Learn more about the oppression of LGBT people in Uganda on this week's edition of Nothing Urgent. Thanks to our sponsor, Heritage Foods USA.

"Everything in DIY, especially live music, is so transient. From my perspective, after a show is done, maybe there will be a flier or someone will take some pictures- but ultimately it's done. It's over." [8:10]

-- Ric Leichtung on Nothing Urgent

"I used to say that I didn't like going to traditional clubs because you would have to deal with a bouncer, you would get kicked out when the show was over... I think that there are just as many cliches about DIY that are just as lame and boring." [23:15]

-- Todd P on Nothing Urgent

"Most homophobia in Uganda has come about very recently, and it's due to the influence of American evangelicals..." [52:00]

-- Malika Zouhali-Worrall on Nothing Urgent

On today’s THE FOOD SEEN, Justin Warner, Pabulum Director of Do or Dine, an “American Izakaya” restaurant in Bed-Stuy, comes to the show to wax poetic about “haute munchies”, and literally rap about wine (eg Chateauneuf du Pape to Snoop Dogg’s Drop It Like It’s Hot, Alsace to Jay-Z’s Empire State of Mind).

Today is a very special food-and-drink-only episode of Snacky Tunes. Darin and Greg Bresnitz are joined in the studio by Naomi Pomeroy of Beast in Portland, Oregon. Tune in to hear about Beast's history in the Alberta Arts District, Portland's affinity for farm-to-table cooking, and its fixed menu in a sea of vegetarians and vegans. Naomi discusses what two tribute dishes she would make for the people who taught her how to cook- her mother and grandmother. Also in the studio is Lesley Townsend, founder and organizer of the Manhattan Cocktail Classic. Tune in to hear about this year's event and all of the surprising collaborations with technology, theater, and music. This program has been sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

"Portland is a really natural place for farm-to-table food because the farms are really close to the city"

"This is a fixed menu, and there's going to be meat." -- Naomi Pomeroy on Snacky Tunes

"The whole point of setting up the festival in this way is to have as many different entities become a part of it, and host their own events." -- Lesley Townsend on Snacky Tunes
