Christopher Lawrence, Hugh Cleal and more this weekend

World-renowned DJ Christopher Lawrence is heading to Denver this weekend; underground artist Hugh Cleal will play Bar Standard tonight, or you can get your dubstep fix with Vaski or Stephan Jacobs. Keep reading for details:

Beta's keeping its reputation as the place to be for dubstep lovers on Fridays this week when the venue hosts Vaski's electro-influenced basslines, with support by Ishe, Dirt Monkey and Zeno. (9 p.m., 18+, $10)

Full Flavor Fridays keeps its commitment to underground electronic music when it brings in Detroit's Hugh Cleal to Bar Standard for this round; Khalib and Ryan Mack will open for the warehouse-party impresario (emphasis on the "house," if you know what we mean). (9 p.m., 21+)

London Dungeon, Pictureplane and Hollagramz will hold down the Beauty Bar on Friday night for the monthly Cold Club Dance Party. (8 p.m., 21+)

Christopher Lawrence, undoubtedly one of the biggest names in trance in electronic-music history, will get asses shaking over Beta's unbelievable sound system on Saturday night; opening will be Cognition + T-Rav and Wolfe. And in the Beatport Lounge, Torin, Steve Moller, Trevor Nygaard, RA13 and Just Ben will be dropping beats; get on the underground guest list for a discount on entry -- part of the guest-list proceeds will benefit Matt Bower, who was the victim of assault this past New Year's Eve. (8 p.m., 18+, $5-$15)

On Saturday, the Dirty Funk Squad takes over the Beauty Bar for Love and Happiness; Himay, Mike Di$co and very special guest Alexander East will be dropping funky house beats for your dancing pleasure. (8 p.m., 21+, no cover)

Colorado's own Paper Diamond will headline the Belly Up in Aspen on Saturday night with Raw Russ and Echo Dafunk; it'll be worth the drive to get your glitch fix. (9 p.m., all ages, $18-$27)

Dubstep fiends should head to Cervantes' on Saturday night to fill up on whomp by Stephan Jacobs, Jantsen, Ishe and Dirt Monkey. (9 p.m., all ages, free for 21+ before 10 p.m., $5 for 21+ after 10 p.m., $10 for under-21 all night)
