The best EDM in Denver this weekend

CLAUDE VONSTROKE @ CITY HALL | SAT, 11/9/13 Claude VonStroke, founder of the illustrious Dirtybird record label, flirts with genres from all over the spectrum, nodding to hip-hop, garage and soul while infecting the dance floor with his playful, upbeat take on house. Although he's long been a presence on the festival circuit, this year was the first that Dirtybird as a label hosted stages at festivals across the country, including HARD, Electric Zoo and TomorrowWorld. Unlike many festival staples, though, VonStroke and his protégés don't play the latest tunes. They're too busy scoping out the sound of the future and sculpting it into their own creations, envisioning and creating the cutting edge of what's new in the house world. Catch Claude VonStroke at City Hall this Saturday, November 9 with J.Phlip, Oona Dahl and Kal Halax.
