Summer may officially be over, but when it comes to heating up the dance floor this weekend, there will be plenty of things to keep you moving.
I thought I was dreaming when I first heard that the Mothership Tour, featuring Skrillex, was going to make its way to Petco Park on Thursday. It will be the first electronic music show there as part of Park at the Park concert series. The 16-and-over event (alcohol will be served to those 21 and up) is from 6-11p.m. and also features 12th Planet, Foreign Beggars and Nadastrom. You can find ticket info here. The 21-and-over official after-party is at Voyeur with a “special guest.”
KEiTHXSN is Keith Milgaten of Jamuel Saxon, one of my favorite local electronic bands, which just happened to win Best Electronic this year at the San Diego Music Awards. Over the summer, Keith created a record of rare remixes and versions of major label songs redone for your dancing pleasure. Friday night at the Kava Lounge will be the official birth of these jamz to the world. Night Brawl, Latin Lovers and DJ Matty P will also be part of the night, so get there early! Check out more details here. Before that, I’ll be getting my dance on at the Ladytron show at the House of Blues.
Saturday night, join me for Club Sabbat at the Flame in Hillcrest. Special guest DJ Joe Letz of Combichrist will be headlining this fourth-Saturday event, and Liquid Grey will also be spinning in the main room. Drew Harlander will keep it old school and goth in the back room, with Warring Vom Warring merchandising on the back stage. Her collection is crafted from reclaimed rubber, vinyl, leather and silk items. I’ll be hosting the festivities; you can get info via this link.
More Thursday through Saturday events are listed on my blog. Here’s to another fun weekend, and I’ll see you on the dance floor!
