Wow, February is already here, and Valentine's Day is just around the corner. There will be plenty to do the weekend before, since it falls on a Tuesday this year.
In the meantime, get this month off to a rockin’ start with Thursday night and Le Spank at the Office. One of my favorite local DJs, Gabe Vega, will spin an all-vinyl set, plus Jon Dadon and Boys Don’t Disco round out the lineup. More info via this link.
Friday night will be nuts at Voyeur for Atlanta-based, Chicago-born Felix da Housecat. He has headlined clubs on every continent, festivals and special events around the world as a DJ. Plus, his solid reputation as a musician who delivers has led Da Housecat to remix for such artists as Madonna, Gwen Stefani and the Chemical Brothers, to name just a few. Deth Hertz opens the night, so plan accordingly. Early bird tickets are sold out, but you can get in on the presale here.
Saturday night, join me for Club Ascension at the Kava Lounge. It’s one of my favorite monthly nights, when Tom King and I host and spin the best in dark underground dance music. Guest DJs Atom and Scarecrow will join us this weekend, plus Gothic Volunteer Alliance will be in attendance, so stop by and say hello. Get more details here. If I wasn’t already busy that night, I’d most likely be heading to El Dorado for Drop the Lime. NYC’s Luca Venezia (aka Drop the Lime) is the man behind Trouble & Bass, an influential New York club night and label since 2006. He hasn’t played a venue in San Diego this small in awhile, so don’t miss your chance to check it out up close and personal. Mike Delgado, Adam Salter and Blancnoire will also be spinning; you can get more info via this link.
Other Thursday through Saturday fun is listed on my blog. Here’s to a super San Diego weekend, and I’ll see you on the dance floor.
