Page 2 of 2

12TH PLANET @ BETA | FRI, 6/28/13 As the leading force behind SMOG, L.A.'s premier dubstep connection, John Dadzie (aka 12th Planet) is well known in the EDM world. Touring with Skrillex certainly helped, but this solo act stands alone, with a quarterly Beta residency that showcases just what is going on behind closed doors at the SMOG label. As a known drum-and-bass aficionado, Dadzie brings the dubstep alive with 12th Planet, and Coult-45 and Caustik will round out the main floor. Raiz of Droid Behavior and Sequence will hold down the Beatport Lounge. (9 p.m., 18+, $15) -- Britt Chester


The Juan MacLean headlines the Fox Theatre up in Boulder with Fun Factory and Falcon Punch to get the grooves started right. (8:30 p.m., all ages, $12-$17)
