Holiday Beats



    Here we are, hot on the heels of a holiday weekend. Most of us are likely to indulge in mass quantities of food, along with adult beverages galore. Do yourself a favor: Get a designated driver going in your group of friends and enjoy all that this weekend has to offer by working off those calories on the dance floor. Especially if you got stuck on the couch with Uncle Louie.

    Gotta start the party Wednesday night, since most of us don’t have to work Thursday. There are so many events happening, including 12th Planet at Voyeur, with an opening set from Flinch. Check out this link for details. At the Flame in Hillcrest, it’s Erica Jessup’s Birthday Party, with DJs Gabe Vega, Shark Attack, Adam Salter and Saul Q, plus, a live performance from Slpwalkers. The fun will be hosted by MayStar and Dana Issa. If you bring a can of food, you get in for free before 10:30 p.m. More info here. At Analog, Lovelife presents Damian Lazarus (Crosstown Rebels | LA | London), plus San Diego’s Jon Dadon, Boys Don’t Disco, Zak J and Justin Baule from Las Vegas. Check out the deets here, and keep in mind the theme is capes and chain. Fun!
    Whether you’d like to blow off some steam after a day with the in-laws Thursday or you need to dance off a third helping of stuffing, AC Lounge has you covered with Jive-Ass Turkey, a night of old-school dance music with DJs SolTonic, JoeMama and El Vee. Just down the street, Club ‘80s at Kadan will be opened for your dancing fix. Also, there’s Spanksgiving at the Office, with DJs Saul Q, Lucky J and Boys Don’t Disco, plus the Kava Lounge will be rolling with King Britt and a slew of others. Get more info here.
    Since Voyeur will be closed Thursday, get your dance fix on Black Friday with Dutch DJ/producer Sander Kleinenberg. The lovely Tara Brooks will be opening the night, so plan accordingly. Get early bird discount tickets here. At Spin nightclub, the final Elev8 of the year is happening, and you can check out more details via this link.
    Saturday night, join me for Club Sabbat at the Flame in Hillcrest. I’ll be DJ'ing with Liquid Grey in the main room, and Diskdroid will be in back. Details via this link. At House of Blues, it’s the fifth annual ‘80s Holiday Hangover Party, featuring tribute bands the Cured, Strangelove, the Police Experience and Murmur. The event will be hosted by Steve West of 91X Resurrection Sundays. Get more info here.
    Check out my blog for other Wednesday through Saturday events. Remember: designated driver, and I’ll see you on the dance floor!
