Full Flavor Fridays, the residency that has been holding down the Appaloosa Grill since this past March, is about to double your pleasure in more ways than one: It's moving to Bar Standard for the first and last Fridays of every month starting this month, and for the Bar Standard debut, resident Greg Campbell is bringing in Q-Burns Abstract Message and vocalist Lisa Shaw. Local favorite Khalib will help Campbell support the headliners. Get out of the house and get into the house. (9 p.m., 21+, $10 before 11 a.m.) And that's not all that's going on this weekend -- here's what else is on our Dance Card:

Nerd Rage is headlining Beta tonight, bringing a blend of electro, dubstep, moombahton and drum-and-bass for your listening pleasure; in the Beatport Lounge, P.U.N.C.H.I.S. hosts Lunatik, Curtis the Destroyer and Angel Castro with their underground techno stylings. (9 p.m., 18+, $10)

The Church is mixing things up tonight with the Global 15 Minutes of Fame DJ Competition, presented by Triad Dragons; on the main floor, it's business as usual with Hycloud, Skye, Floorbangers, Twenty42 and Phunke Elements, with Klutch Beat Boutique in the mashup basement and Peter Elzi in the retro room. (18+, no cover for ladies 21+)

Tacoma native and "gumbo techno" star Donald Glaude will bring his impressive tunes to Beta on Saturday night, with Cognition + T-Rav and Marshall Monica warming up the decks. (9 p.m., 18+, $10)

City Hall is hosting Open House, its monthly party showcasing what's next in the electronic-music scene, on Saturday; this month, Anthony Attalla will share the decks with Sir Thomas and Christopher James. You'll hear techno and progressive beats -- and it's free for the over-21 crowd! (18+, $10 for under 21)

Nocturnal Emission is hosting a Pimp & Ho Throwdown at Bushwacker's Saloon on Saturday, celebrating a ten-year anniversary with Q*LYNX and Terra Poisson. (8 p.m.)

And keep it going on Sunday, when Grammy-nominated Detroit legend Carl Craig headlines Beta to close out the weekend. (9 p.m., 18+, $10)

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
