DJ Micro, Reverend Pariah and more on this weekend's Dance Card

With UMS taking over the town this weekend -- and everyone recovering from Global Dance Festival and Full Moon Gathering last weekend, not to mention Sunshine Jones last night -- this week's Dance Card isn't quite as full, but between DJ Micro and the all-vinyl House Revival session, you will still find plenty of opportunities to shake that ass. Here's what's on our Dance Card:

The renowned DJ Micro will be making a stop tonight at the Church; over Micro's decade-spanning career, he's transitioned beautifully from breakbeats to today's techno-kissed trance, and he'll no doubt have Churchgoers raising their hands in praise. (9 p.m., 18+, free for ladies 21+, $15 for guys 21+, $20 for those under 21)

Funky Buddha's hosting another Friday Fling with DJ Shake 1 and guests spinning hip-hop and Top 40. (8 p.m., 21+)

And yes, it's that time again -- time for Forever Fridays, Beta's weekly club night with resident DJs Shares, Petey and Frank, plus P.U.N.C.H.I.S. presenting ZoOLoGiKo in the Beatport Lounge. TGIF! (9 p.m., 21+, $5, no cover for ladies)

Milk Bar's weekly Industrial/Goth night is back for another week on Saturday with DJ Mike Rich and Erik Putz. (9 p.m., 21+, $5 cover after 10 p.m.)

Reverend Pariah is heating up Vinyl on Saturday along with Joman, Beckley & Krootz and Little Zen on the Altered Egos stage; plus hip hop with DJ Danny, house-and-electro mashups with DJ True on the second floor, and '80s, '90s and Top 40 dance hits with Dave Peacock on the roof. (9 p.m., 18+)

Sydney Blu headlines Beta on Saturday night with Jontron, Dragon and more; the first female to garner a Top 10 single on Beatport is bound to draw crowds. (9 p.m., 18+, ladies 21+ free before 11 p.m.)

Reid Speed is dropping dubstep on the Bluebird Theater on Saturday with Cyberoptics, Ishe, Dirt Monkey and more. (9 p.m., all ages, $22-$25)

And if you're out late Saturday night, head to Soundpharmacy Saturdays with DJs Kaya and Sinful continuing the party till dawn at 2 a.m. (1 a.m. Sunday, 18+)
