The best EDM in Denver this weekend

Page 2 of 2

FRI | CARL CRAIG at NON-CLUB VENUE | 2/21/14 Carl Craig has one of the most recognizable names in dance music -- which is all the more impressive when you consider that he has nearly enough alter egos to take over a stage at a weekend festival. The Detroit techno god started experimenting with identity and sound early, playing sets and releasing tracks as 69, BFC and Psyche in the late '80s and early '90s; his label, Planet E Communications, has been releasing tracks by respected artists since 1991. Craig was present for the heyday of the Motor City's techno scene, and he continues to showcase the gritty, pulsing music that has garnered that city world renown -- even as he updates and tweaks his personal sound style. The legendary artist will play an extended set, with Heidi and some local favorites joining in the fun, on Friday, February 21, at a to-be-announced venue (visit brownpapertickets.com/event/555952 for tickets).
