The best EDM in Denver this weekend

MIM0SA @ FOX THEATRE | SAT, 8/31/13 In just one short year, Tigran Mimosa went from bass-bombing Cervantes' and playing free shows at Boulder record stores to headlining the Fillmore. His album 58 Degrees showcases his drum-and-bass influences while hinting at his progression into a finer, more complex realm of musical composition and cross-genre remixes. A true student of the electronic era, Mimosa isn't just another whomp-stomp-wobble-repeater maestro: His tracks blend drums, bass, hip-hop, dub and downtempo into one melodic collage that will have you grooving from start to finish. Bass Science and Papa Skunk will open for this impresario. (8:30 p.m., all ages, $25) -- Britt Chester
