Napoleon Complex



    It’s another holiday weekend and the official start of summer is upon us. Plenty of backyard BBQing and beach action awaits. Hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy a combination of downtime and fun. Isn’t that what it’s all about -- especially if you don’t have to work on Monday?

    Saturday is a tough one -- there’s a lot to choose from. Green Velvet and Audrey Napoleon will be at Voyeur, while Groundfloor has his mix-CD release party at El Dorado. Plus, DJ Magazine’s No. 1 DJ in the world, Armin Van Buuren, will be kicking things off early for a special daytime Intervention at the Hard Rock.
    Since many of you will be nursing a hangover by Sunday morning, why not start your day with Resurrection Brunch at West Coast Tavern in North Park? They have a fabulous Bloody Mary Bar, along with tasty food, like my favorite, Chicken Fried Chicken. This Sunday I may go out of my box a little and order the Chicken ‘n’ Waffle. Yum! And that’s not even the half of it. I’ll be spinning ‘80s and ‘90s tunes from noon till 2 p.m. Brunch at West Coast starts at 10 a.m., so get there early and enjoy! Later on that day you can get your dance on at several hotspots around town. Intervention is going on at the Hard Rock with DJ Mag’s No. 5 DJ group, Above & Beyond. Also, LA Riots and PeaceTreaty headline a huge lineup at Wavehouse. Later that night, Laidback Luke and Chris Lake will make you shake a leg at Voyeur for an 18-plus event (no alcohol served at the bar), and then the party moves to 4th & B (21-plus) until 4 a.m. Also spinning at this event are Funkagenda, Aeroplane, Van Toth and Deth Hertz. You’ll definitely work off a few calories and then some.    
    For more shenanigans, hit up my blog here. Have a fun and safe Memorial Day Weekend. Don’t forget the designated driver, and I’ll see you on the dance floor!
