A dose of attitude

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
thehitlist Fred Falke

North County has its share of dive bars that are usually filled with a random mix of people—loudmouth bros, military men, surfers and others stand around, knocking back beers while Sublime plays on the sound system. There’s not a lot of pretense up there, evident in the fact that 95 percent of the crowd is in flip-flops.

Adding a bit of pretentious Downtown vibe to Encinitas is Vicious Thursdays, a night of electronic dance stompers at Daley Double Saloon (546 S. Coast Hwy. 101), or just The Saloon, as many refer to it. DJs Gabe Vega and Fishfonics lead the dance party each week, bringing something new to the area. As far as I know, no hard house remixes of “Santeria” are played. But I can’t be sure.

If you’re thinking, Hey now! Pretentiousness keeps things interesting. I like partying like a cokehead with abandonment issues, then head to El Dorado (1030 Broadway, Downtown) on Saturday, Oct. 20. French DJ and producer Fred Falke will be doing a special DJ set featuring his brand of pop-disco-house tunes set to thumping beats. It’s the sort of thing that movie directors would use to soundtrack a scene in which a girl dies at a discotheque. That means it’s going to be packed. Joining Falke are the renowned DJ Perseus and local party-maker Adam Salter.

The party bus continues to roll on Saturday at The Flame (3780 Park Blvd. in Hillcrest) for the Diamond Dust Pre-Halloween Costume Party, hosted by the queen of the scene, MayStar, and someone who goes by the name Love Doctor Trevorkian. Check out hungry girls modeling fashion from Brit Boy, Cat Lewis, Redux by Peach O., Miss Nazz and Paul Rico as DJs pump out electro beats. Once the dance floor starts going, there’ll be an unplanned poseoff. Mark my words.
