Justin Martin is coming into town tonight with fellow Dirtybird artist Claude VonStroke, kicking off an insane night and fabulous weekend with DJ ESP (aka Woody McBride), Jonn Hawley and more. Page down to see what else is on this weekend's Dance Card.
City Hall will be on fire tonight with the heat of the feet on the dance floor for Dirtybird impresarios Claude Von Stroke and Justin Martin (the latter of whom just released Ghettoes and Gardens). And when two Dirtybird artists play together, things are bound to get wild. (9 p.m., 18+, $17-$25)
Electric Pony is bringing Woody McBride (aka DJ ESP) back to the Appaloosa Grill tonight for some old-school goodness; Sound Advice, Garret and Greg Campbell will also provide tunes. There will be drink specials (including a late-night happy hour), a VJ and live spray art. (9 p.m., 21+, $5-$10 suggested donation)
It's hard to believe that it's already been one year since the Fusion Factory opened its doors to the underground masses -- artists, musicians, yogis, performers and body painters galore. Tonight's anniversary celebration features new artwork and bass music by m.i.t.h., stefanB, bitnomad, Max Lord, Lolo Gonzo, grymetime and more. (8 p.m., 21+, $10)
NORAD hosts some house mayhem courtesy of LuOui (of 2Dubaii) with 12th Street Mafia, Kommon Interests and Smooth Move, so it's sure to be a raging good time. (21+, 9 p.m., $5-$10)
Martin Roth's minimal sounds will fill the main floor at Beta on Saturday night, accompanied by Funhouse residents, of course. (9 p.m., 18+, $10)
On Saturday night at NORAD, Boogie Boutique (a collaboration among Colorado House Community and Spellbound Music) hosts Tony Rodelli's birthday party with guest Jonn Hawley, Ejay and Rodelli himself. (9 p.m., 21+)
Still going late on Saturday night? Pitch Black hosts nightwalkers Hipp-E, Greg Eversoul, Bones and special guest (and aforementioned birthday boy) Tony Rodelli, too. Keep posted on the Facebook page for details. (1 a.m., 21+)
