San Francisco

We recently took a brief poll of what our fans on Facebook & Twitter thought was the “Track of the Year,” and we received overwhelming responses for “Levels” by Avicii. After an enormous year with productions as well as touring, Avicii is coming back to San Francisco for an encore after playing a couple dates at Ruby Skye back in September. On December 29th, he will be playing at The Warfield at two separate times (7:30pm and 11pm). However, the 11pm show is already sold out, but there are still tickets available for the 7:30pm slot! San Francisco, we recommend you act fast on tickets to catch an artist that is partially responsible for electronic music’s recent explosion in the US. Keep an eye on our Facebook on Friday for a ticket giveaway and see how Australia gets down with Avicii after the jump!

The San Francisco based Chris Harnett & David Carvalho aka White Noize are back at it again with more pounding pounding… DISCO music? The veteran Dj duo have just released their next EP on DJ Dan’s InStereo Recordings called WEEKEND IN CALIFORNIA, featuring “Honey Love” and “Big Bright Lights.” WhiteNoize are known for digging up old disco classics and reviving them with club electro, fidget, and tech-house body parts.

As summer chugs along and the dog days approach the temperature only continues to rise out here on the Best Coast. Expect a massive heat wave to hit this Thursday though as the mad Belgian scientists known as Mumbai Science descend upon the Mile High City to start their mini 2011 Summer Tour that will see them lighting up clubs from the Rockies to the Bay to the Border as they drop festival firestarters like ‘Ancova‘ & ‘Gold‘ in intimate venues like our very own Versus (August 4th!)

Having the chance to see this rising act, that now routinely plays for 1000s, in relatively small venues is an experience and opportunity you probably won’t have again as their ascent to stardom continues, so make sure you get yo’ tickets for one of these 7 gigs while you can! Along the way they’ll be getting support from longtime GDD™ backed Canadian John Roman, Aussie insane-asylum-escapees Bareback DJ’s, the lovely Brazzabelle, our very own ///BONES and various local talent in each city. More details including dates and ticketing links (and some tunes) after the jump! Oh and if you don’t remember our interview/mix with Mumbai, peep it over here!
