The best EDM in Denver this weekend

SAT | LOO & PLACIDO at NORAD | 10/19/13 Artists like Danger Mouse and Z-Trip have brought the art of the mash-up to the forefront, but few take it to the extremes of Loo & Placido (aka Laurent Lupidi and Jeremy Johnson, respectively), who each played in assorted French bands before teaming up to create sounds that tweak your mind and rock your body. The two reach into the far corners of assorted genres, from rock, hip-hop and disco to funk, dancehall and pop, blending the music with any number of electronic sounds made with machines, keyboards and live vocals for a mixed-up set that's different every night. Their mixes have even been accepted into the mainstream, gaining attention from such high-profile stars as Madonna. Catch the duo of mixmasters on Saturday, October 19, at NORAD with Dirty Little Thieves.
