For the EDM addicts

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
hitlist Tiesto brings the EDM to the people.

EDM, or electronic dance music, has blown up in the last couple of years among folks who like their music to sound like a drug one might buy from a sketchy dude on a backstreet. The rave generation died in the ’90s and was resurrected this decade by the party rockers in their animal-print pants and thick-framed neon glasses. For those of you who can’t get enough of seizure-inducing tunes, here are a few nights to check out:

On Thursday, Dec. 6, the king of the EDM scene, Tiesto, will play what’s sure to be a huge, sweaty, druggy dance party at Valley View Casino Center (formerly known as the Sports Arena). The Dutch DJ and producer is known for putting on an intense, strobe-light-filled show where people go ape-shit over his driving beats. Still, the $50 ticket price may deter some from entering the club-kid kingdom.

If you’re too broke to party with Tiesto but really need to blow your ear drums with repetitive thumping sounds, head to Fluxx (500 Fourth Ave., Downtown) for its EDM party with DJs Scooter and Lavelle. Pre-sale tickets are a much more reasonable $10. The duo’s known to put out some bangin’ party sounds on four turntables, a unique mix of progressive and hip-hop dance music. Also, DJs are just dudes who stand there and play music.  It’s going to be OK.

Lastly, if you want to party hard for a good cause, head to The Brass Rail (3795 Fifth Ave. in Hillcrest) for Sultry on Friday, Dec. 7. EDM DJs will spin while fire eaters, burlesque dancers, aerialists and all sorts of other weird performances stimulate your eyeballs. Admission is only $5, and proceeds will go to Human Rights Campaign, so you can feel better about being an EDM addict.
