Another weekend is upon us, and it’s time to let off some steam, and dance and stomp till we drop. There’s everything from house to industrial to disco for your dancing shoes to enjoy. If you plan on stomping, then it’s probably best to wear some big black boots and the appropriate eyewear.
You probably won’t need goggles Thursday at Voyeur downtown when you check out Fake Blood, aka DJ Touché. A little history on this wonderful British DJ, producer and musician (whose real name is Theo Keating): He made his name as one-half of a hip-hop/electronica band called the Wiseguys. Fast-forward to Keating’s current project, the duo the Black Ghosts. Keating is also a house/electro DJ and producer under the name Fake Blood. He has released several productions, including 2009's “I Think I Like It." Keating has also done remixes for many artists, Hot Chip, the Kills and Little Boots among them. Deth Hertz from Los Angeles will open this event. Here is a link for more info.
Friday night, two lovely ladies are celebrating their birthdays. U-31’s Nicole Novak has a fun-filled dance night planned for you: a disco-house extravaganza featuring a special DJ set from the Juan Maclean of DFA Records at U-31 in North Park. Saul Q and Colourvision will also be spinning, so get ready to party. Go to this link for details. More birthday shenanigans over at the Whistle Stop in South Park, as Sara Morrison (aka Karmiclife) celebrates with live performances from Swim Party and D/Wolves. DJ Jaime Ali and yours truly will be playing electro, indie and '80s throughout the night. Check out more about this free event here.
Saturday, don your darkest deviant future-tech attire and join Club Sabbat for Cyber Night at the Flame in Hillcrest. I’ll be DJ'ing old-school dark '80s, '90s and goth in the back room, while the harsh EBM and industrial music flows in the main room with DJs Diskdroid (celebrating his birthday) and Severin. This special stompy night is back by popular demand, so don’t miss out. And, yes, goggles are a must for this event, even if you don’t usually wear sunglasses at night. For more info, go here.
Check out my blog for more info about Thursday through Saturday events. Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you on the dance floor with my big black boots.
