Why: The space formerly occupied by fashion brand Obaitamu gets a sketchy new tenant this week, one who wants to scar you for life.

You can’t ring their doorbell yet, but they’re home delivering Chinese food. bpb will be at the house warming, so stay tuned for a full review!

What: Dog Eared, The Pop Up Library at Matthieu Foss Gallery, Hansraj Damodar Trust Building, Ballard Estate, call 67477261 or visit the Facebook page here, free event.
Why: Housed in a former Reader’s Digest office, Matthieu Foss returns to its roots this month, transforming into a temporary book library where people can contribute, browse and barter art books. Early donations include catalogues on landscape and contemporary art, essays by Tolstoy and photo book from Bamako, Mali.
When: Until August 15, you can donate books to the gallery. For ten days after that, the collection will be open to the public for browsing only. On August 26, people who donated will be able to take home as many books as they contributed. Books can also be exchanged for drawings by art students. Word!
What: Folk and root music at De Kulture, available online here or at Loose Ends, off Linking Road, Bandra (W), Rs 395.
Why: A few minutes on De Kulture’s website and you’ll find out why beat-route is so good for you. Rich in forgotten folk music from all over India, these guys sell the sounds (ringtones, CDs and individual tracks) of Rajasthan’s chamak chalos, Punjab’s dilrubas, brass bands of the British era and more. We recommend Lounge in Punjab and Footprints in the Desert.
When: When Pushkar comes to shove.
