As last weekend's LOVE event indicated, the underground electronic-music scene in the metro area is alive and kicking. This month alone, three new residencies are kicking off at various locales; keep reading for the details.
This Saturday, March 5, The Blend starts its monthly residency at the Meadowlark, 2701 Larimer Street, at 9 p.m.; local favorites Hoang, Sami T and Brick Lee will provide the tunes, and the cover charge is a mere $5. The residency will likely switch to the second Saturday of every month; keep yourself posted at the Blend's Facebook page.
Every fourth Friday of the month, resident DJs Brett Starr and Rescue will showcase a different house DJ from around the country at Therapy, the new monthly residency at 2200, 821 22nd Street. This Friday, March 25, you can catch Aarta (part of the Architects) hailing from Portland; locals Sami T and Styles Davis will spin in the upstairs lounge, as well. It runs from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., and admission is $5 before 11 p.m. and $7 after. Therapy also has a Facebook page where you can stay up-to-date.
And on the last Friday of every month (also March 25), Full Flavor will host a residency at Appaloosa Grill, 535 16th Street. Admission is a $5 cover charge; in March, look for electro/house DJ Monty Luke (Greg Campbell, Sound Advice and Matthew Copeland will open for Luke); get information at http://fullflavormusic.com.
