The best EDM in Denver this weekend

SAT | PURITY RING (DJ SET) at CASSELMAN'S | 12/21/13 A Canadian duo made up of Corin Roddick and Megan James, Purity Ring has made a name for itself with syncopated rhythms and dreamy, pop-oriented soundscapes. James, who designs and stitches the clothes that the pair wear on stage, lays down the vocals, while Roddick's production precision gives the act's tracks the skeleton that supports and uplifts the group's sets. Drenched in the influence of hip-hop's and thick with emotion and soul, the music of Purity Ring is a thing of sophisticated beauty. Don't miss Purity Ring's DJ set this Saturday with Giraffage, Krooked Drivers and Vinnie Maniscalco.
