All kidding aside, this weekend is going to be off-the-hook with parties and celebrations galore.
But first, Thursday night the DJ stylings of Grammy-nominated Wolfgang Gartner grace the stage at House of Blues for the opening of his tour. This stellar electro/house music producer will be joined by Felix Cartel for an 18-plus show. Gear up by listening to this and get ready for an energetic set of non-stop party action. Over at Voyeur, electronic DJ/producer Hatiras headlines a fun night of music. He just tore it up at the Ultra Festival in Miami, and San Diego is his next stop. Doing opening honors is Mr. White, who spun in town a few weeks ago at Voyeur.
Friday April Fools night with Moonshake at Kadan will feature Phil-Aye, a former member of San Diego’s Siesta Music group. Phil has been spinning since the early ‘90s, having been involved in great parties like Galactic Soundsystem, Global Underworld and 4 Directions. His selection of tunes is right in line with Moonshake’s discotech tradition. In addition, all the usual suspects will be in the house; Mark E. Quark, Dr. Indulgent and Bob Dazzla. So get ready to party with the crew at Kadan. Birthday shenanigans will be in full effect at Voyeur Friday night for the beautiful Audrey Napoleon, as she opens for internationally acclaimed DJ/producer Umek from Slovenia.

Saturday night is the 5 Year Anniversary Party of Club Ascension at the Kava Lounge. Tom King and I have been hosting and spinning together at this night since its inception. Joining us for the celebration will be DJs Ladynoir and Severin, with the best in dark underground dance music. Frederick Faith projections and visual art will adorn the walls, and you’ll have a chance to win tickets to the upcoming Brendan Perry/Robin Guthrie show at the Belly Up in June. The fun starts at 9 p.m., and if you need any other info, go here.
