Instore #17 With Chrome Canyon and James Friedman (of Throne of Blood Music). 6-9 pm on Friday, save the date. Chrome Canyon will be doing a very special live in-store performance.

Man I love Friday! And Control at Avalon just made my week a whole lot better! For only $15 you can catch, Treasure Fingers, Burns and Codes! Three amazing emerging producers that should not be missed! For $15 what can go wrong? Nothing.
Insomniac has been running a weekly Friday night event called "Awakening" as well as a Saturday event called "Inception." For the month of October they are doing something really special! You can purchase an "October Pass" to either Friday or Saturday or to both days! Each pass allows you to go to every event on the purchased day for the month of October. Tickets to Friday's "October Awakening Pass" are roughly $55.
The Do LaB presents Big Gigantic, GRiZ and Ancona. If you've yet to catch Big Gigantic do yourself a favor and make the time this weekend. There's a reason why they've developed a rabid following over the last couple of years. Kinda blows that it's at the House of Blues, but whatever. Also on the bill is Griz, a young producer from Detroit, and Ancona aka Romy Ancona, a self taught musician making his way through the Hollywood, South Bay, and Las Vegas club circuit.
Magnetic friends, Sex Panther, take the stage at the iconic Newport Beach club Sutra. Come out and see the DJ duo deliver a high energy set filled with bottle popping, go-go dancing, and huge drops with epic basslines. Tickets are available for $20. OR you can get on the list for FREE by saying "Dance More. Worry Less." at the door!
LA DJ Clockwork also known as RL Grime will be invading Voyeur this Friday. The DJ sensation has developed a unique sound and a strong following. The producer is known for his heavy basslines and his dirty trap tracks. You can catch this young DJ for FREE. Just drop Voyeur a comment with your RSVP. Do it HERE!
Rhonda Presents: Priceless Energy with Maurice Fulton. For the heads, the one and only Maurice Fulton will be in town on Saturday night doing this thing for the Rhonda peeps. Maurice Fulton very rarely makes it to Los Angeles, so when this true auteur does come to town, you go. You run. You do anything you need to not to miss it. That's what we'd do if we were you. RSVP here.

FOOOOOOOLLLLL'S GOOOOOLLLLLLDDD is taking over Los Angeles this Saturday as they most their massive "Day Off" party. Very similar to Mad Decent's and Diplo's "Block Party," A-Trak thought he should get in the mix and host his own Free Party.

VIP Tickets are still available though for $100, it will be worth it! Trust me.
The weekly event at Avalon called AVALAND is always showcasing high class talent or some of the best emerging talent in the EDM space. This week Avaland is bringing in Bobina, Menno de Jong, and Kristina Sky. For $20 you can get in before 11 PM. It'll be a good time, it always is...

Andy Caldwell, David Garcia and a special guest are to take the stage for the epic birthday party. You can be a part of the night for only $15! Grab your tickets here today!
My pick of the week comes at one of my favorite nightclubs, Greystone Manor. Good music and strong drinks what attracts me but this week they have something really special. Zedd and Porter Robinson will be dropping by apart of their "Poseidon B2B" tour. I Imagine that means the two DJs will be performing together. This is a sight you will not want to miss, so make sure to catch all the action at Greystone this Tuesday. Tickets are only $75 and it will sell out!
