CONTROL Fridays @ The Avalon. Whether you like it or not, you’ve got a crazy story to tell from a night spent there. We think about what music we may be into right now or not anymore, but you better believe if you live in Los Angeles or have been here for a weekend, chances are you have had a wild one at one of the longest standing electronic music weekly events across the globe. After the “blog-house” scene spilled DJs into clubs and venues nationwide, Los Angeles was a beacon for this growing underground buzz. It wasn’t without difficulty for a young Ryan Jaso and Chris White to prove to the already storied venue, Avalon Hollywood, that their new weekly event CONTROL would gain any traction and or keep the crowds coming. “The red-headed step child” as the owners and managers of the club first called it, CONTROL  had to live in the shadow of Avalon’s bigger nights showcasing heavyweights such as Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto, and a still thriving live music calendar. But none of that could stand in the way of what was going to happen with a growing music scene. For 5 years now, the “little weekly party that could” has turned into the taste-making, career-launching, riot-starting, life-changing movement that has kept LA one of the premiere places to discover new talent and see the best of the best at the same damn time.
