Steve Aoki, the creator of Dim Mak records -- the label responsible for pushing MSTRKRFT and Bloody Beatroots into the spotlight, and recently recharging Atari Teenage Riot's career -- does a lot of things, mostly involving highly successful parties. Aoki (aka Kid Millionaire), playing Cervantes tonight, is a remix master, cutting up songs like Peaches' "Boys Wanna Be Her" and injecting them with happy house beats.
Cervantes' is the perfect spot for a massive Aoki party, and what a better way to start the weekend early than by dancing on a giant club cube? This show is all ages, and is $29. Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9 p.m. Short on scratch but still itching to get your groove on? We got you. If you and a guest would like to be our guests tonight at the show, hit us up below and tell us in five words why we should pick you. Be sure to include your actual email address so we can let you know if you win.
