It’s been an amazing 2 years, but we will be retiring VERSUS after we celebrate its second birthday this Thursday. From Digitalism to D. Ramirez, Dillon Francis to RL Grime, and Canblaster to Zombie Disco Squad, we’ve been so lucky to be able to showcase established as well as rising talent in an intimate setting on the West side of Los Angeles since 2011. We’ll be taking a break for a while, but VERSUS may come back in some form one day. On that note, we invite you to celebrate one more time with us this Thursday as we bring in some very very special guests to help close out an amazing chapter. We expect this one to be a big one, so arrive early before the Jameson runs out.


Much love,


The first CONTROL in 2013 comes in the form of Big Room House, with a threesome of headliners including Hook N Sling, Alex Kenji, and MAKJ, with supporting sets from Brian Matrix and Party Favor.

For discount guestlist, please email names to before 5:30PM tonight.
