Zoom Off

Now that Bedniye Lyudi has expanded and added a whole new performance space, its managers have been casting around for better acts. The club is beginning to rival Svalka and Chesterfields for live performances. Saturday features the Moscow-based funk rock group Zoom, a cross between the Ukrainian Vopli Vidoplyasova and Rolling Stones opener Spleen. The concert begins around 11 p.m., but things won't start funking until around midnight.

Bedniye Lyudi. Cover: 50 rubles. 11/6 Ulitsa Bolshaya Ordynka, 951-3342, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m, Metro: Tretyakovskaya.

Through the Looking Glass

The experimental club scene in Moscow is not dead yet. While Trety Put has become passe, other clubs are picking up the slack. Hipsters are heading out to the edge of Moscow to the newly opened Timur Lansky club Krai -- a slice of East Berlin in Moscow. This Friday features classical musicians performing Schnittke and Gypsy music, while Shammanists from Tuva perform Saturday. Club cards sometimes required. Wear tinted shades, and you'll pass the face control.

Krai. No cover. 14 Spartakovskaya Ploshchad (entrance through the courtyard, look for graffiti on outside walls), 267-4664, 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Metro: Baumanskaya.
