Lady Miss Kier in SF, The Teenagers in CHI, LA Riots in PHILA and more

Lady Miss Kier

Really rad party being put on tonight in San Francisco by Big Stereo, Eggs and Mezanine. It features the one and only Lady Miss Kier from Dee-Lite doing a DJ set, a real dance music legend who sadly is probably known only fr "Groove Is In The Heart." But, if you're gonna be remembered for one thing, that's not a bad one. I expect a great mix of house and pop and dance from her, bring some of that late 80s club magic back. If that wasn't enough, you also get a live show by Melissa Logan from Chicks On Speed, Safety Scissors and, best of all, one from Planningtorock, who opened for LCD Soundsystem last year and killed it imo. There's also the Big Stereo DJs, Rchrd Oh?! and Miss Toats, guaranteeing the dance floor stays current and live. Inspired booking here, grab your advance $15 tickets now.

-Oh, San Fran, your choice for tonight just got a lot harder. Pretty massive dance night at Mighty (119 Utah St), as Tommie Sunshine AND Juan MacLean are spinning tonight. Two big names from NYC, should be an interesting mix of more big-room rock influened stuff and deeper, housier music. Lights Down Low's Sleazemore will also spin, good for him. Go here to grab advance tickets with a discount, use SLEAZEMORE as promo code.

-If you want to start the night early in SF, head over to the Beauty Bar (19th and Mission) for the Bad Habits happy hour party. It goes from 7-10, good way to get the night rolling so that you don't have to go from 0-60 at 10:30pm.

-Chicago won't be outdone on the special guest/live show front, as Avant Trill and the Dark Wave Disco have brought The Teenagers to town to melt your faces. Really psyched about this one, as AT and DWD have been doing so many great parties on the smaller side, this one deserves maximum hype. This band has a ton of hype, but they've exceeded all of the unfair expectations so far. Chicago, you're not going to want to miss these guys on their first stop in your city, so get to Sonotheque (. Also, make sure to check out the most excellent Dark Wave Disco DJs - Trancid, Greg Corner and Mark Gertz - who will be spinning all night and reminding you to check them out every Thursday at Debonair. Also, the Avant Trillers Jillian Valentino and Scott Cramer host with Paul In Chicago and CT Couture, is photo-ing, should be an amazing night. Doors at 9, goes til 3am, $4 Goose Island and Svedka cocktails

-In Brooklyn, it's Crooked Disco at Galapagos (70 N. 6th St), Free NYC's party. This one features a video-audio mixing crew from London called Ecletic Method, sounds like something different and interesting. The straight audio part of the night sounds even better, with Seattle's Krnl Panic, Dances With White Girls and DJ Morsy spinning ghetttech, house, electro, rap and everything else you need in your life. $5 with an RSVP to, open bar from 10-11. Doors at 10pm, 21+.

-A few blocks away, Philly White Ts and White Belts guys, Emynd and B Bliz, come to Williamsburg for the Wamp! Wamp! party at Supreme Trading (213 N. 8th St) They join birthday boy Moe Choi and Erik The Red for night of dirty rap and dirtier beats. No cover, 21+.

-I feel like I can't put this one as top choice every Saturday, but secretly I want to. It's the U.N.I.T.Y. 90s party at Hugs (108 N. 6th St) with Lauren Flax and JD Samson. Tonight, the UK's Daughters of Kaos are the special guests, I'm assuming they will stick to the 90s-only restrictions. No c0ver, 21+, feel young again.


-Late addition, awesome flier. Flagrant Fowl's Cousin Cole and Moonwalk's Rezound are gonna be spinning all night at Hope Lounge (10 Hope Street) This should be a nice relaxed night, Cole and Rezound will spin the classics you love and the stuff you've never heard. Good place to stop in or park it all night. No cover, 21+.

-Philly, this one's important. Pound for Pound has been big fans of LA Riots from jump street, they are making their Philly debut tonight at the Mad Pu$$y party at Transit (6th and Spring Garden) As you may know, I've been a big fan of Philly since I was born at Pennsylvania Hospital, so I want everyone to get to the basement and give these guys the best reception they have gotten on tour. Freak out, dance, drink, kiss, just be yourselves and show them why you are the best city on earth. Brendan Bring'em is upstairs in the main room, spinning his mix of rap, dancehall, pop, r&b, you know him. Go here and get on the list, $5 before midnight if you are on it, free PBR from 10-12. Let's do it Philly, yeah!

-Or you can hit up Live Forever at The Barbary (951 Frankford Ave) with JHN RDN, Designer Drugs and Club Lyfestile, where the dance music will make you immortal. $5, 21+.
