There are some changes brewing in the local underground scene when it comes to residencies: First, House Revival has been moved from the every-so-often fifth Saturday of the month to the more frequent second-Saturday slot; and Beta's Beatport Lounge and P.U.N.C.H.I.S. are launching PM/AM, a new event concept that starts at Beta and ends at an afterparty presented by Awesome Factory, for a total of eight hours of underground music. And that's not all that's on our dance card this week; take a look at what all is happening:
Troy Pierce's minimal techno will hold down the Beatport Lounge at Beta for P.U.N.C.H.I.S. tonight with Daegon and Frgmnt; on the main floor will be Figure dropping the bass, presented by Sub.Mission and Reload. (9 p.m., 18+, $10; after-party at 9th and Santa Fe starts at 1 a.m., 21+, $10)
Ghost Plate & Tap is hosting another Spellbound Outta Sight Friday Night!, this one with a twist: It's also the launch of MonkeyShine XXX, a tap wine created by the Infinite Monkey Theorem winery and Breckenridge-Wynkoop Brewing. Ejay, Brandon Brown, Michael Jones, Mathyou and Himay will keep the party going; there will also be food. Access to the rooftop speakeasy requires the password "Monkey Shine," and 1920s attire is encouraged. (8 p.m., 21+, no cover)
Lipgloss is throwing the Chromeo afterparty at La Rumba; Sammy Bananas and Granger Danger will be the guests on the dance-heavy decks this week. (9 p.m., 21+, free before 10 p.m., $5 after)
Vital Yoga presents a First Friday Yoga, Music, Sculptformance event; while DJ Solomoon drops his ambient tones, Megan Panchinin will host a Vinayasa flow class; participants are encouraged to wear white or purple to enhance the "sculptformance." (7 p.m, all ages)
Brett Starr's House Revival is an anomaly; it features three DJs every month trading off at the decks, with no set times, just a blend of house music. On Saturday, Brett Starr will be joined by Khalib and Omaha's DJ Tres at the Funky Buddha. Let's have a revival! (9 p.m., 21+)
Beta hosts the Martinez Brothers and Adultnapper, with support by Wolfe, on Saturday night; the soulful house will no doubt keep the dance floor packed. (9 p.m., 18+, $10)
For your Saturday-night bass fix, head to the Gothic Theatre, which is hosting Machinedrum Room(s) tour with iTAL tEK, Chrissy Murderbot, Ishe and Dirty Monkey. (8 p.m., 18+, $20-$25)
