The best EDM in Denver this weekend

MOON BOOTS @ NORAD | FRI, 5/24/13 Moon Boots maintains a mysterious persona appropriate for a being who's allegedly imbued with sentience in a top-secret NASA experiment, but here's what we know about him: He's based out of Chicago, he's signed on the French Express label, and he has a grasp on the sort of funky, dirty, soulful sound that many house DJs would give their sense of rhythm for.

Moon Boots has been blowing up the underground scene all over the planet with his dance-floor-packing sets, mining throwback disco and funk to give his mixes sexy curves and an irresistible siren song. Listening to his compositions at your desk will lead to undeniable chair-dancing; listening at home will cause breakout breakdowns; and in a club setting, well, you'd better hope you don't scorch the soles of your feet so badly you can't walk the next day. Catch Moon Boots at NORAD with option4, Keepers and Black Amex. (9 p.m., 21+, $8-$10)

MICHAEL MENERT @ CASSELMAN'S | FRI, 5/24/13 Michal Menert has parlayed his snowboarding mentality into a music career. It's all about doing what you love because you love doing it, and Menert embodies that in every way, from the dedicated tours to the free distribution of glitchy, bass-driven music. Catch him at Casselman's. (8 p.m., 18+, $20) -- Britt Chester
