It’s hard to believe that CONTROL is already celebrating its second birthday this Friday at the Avalon in Hollywood. Over the past 100 or so weeks, the CONTROL family has brought talent ranging from Rusko to Wolfgang Gartner, Dada Life to Claude VonStroke, and this week we’re showing that our 3rd year will be as strong as ever with a packed lineup featuring Felguk, Bingo Players, a live performance by our homies PeaceTreaty, Mr. White, and more! Here’s to another stellar year at CONTROL!
For this event, we will have only 200 spots on our guestlist so please RSVP 21+ names (no pluses) to firstname.lastname@example.org to be on our discounted list for the night, and it will be first come first serve. This week, pricing will be $30 before 1030pm. If you’d like to secure a ticket, you can purchase presales HERE, but make sure to hurry because they will sell out soon! You must receive a confirmation email back from me to confirm that you are on the guestlist, but guestlist confirmation does not guarantee entry.
• Bingo Players – Get On The Move (Original Mix) √+
• Paul Ahi – With A Vengeance (PeaceTreaty Remix – Vocal Edit)
The absolutely stunning Kid Sister will be performing live tonight at CONTROL at the Avalon in Hollywood. This Windy City woman has been the voice to some great dance tracks in the past few years, including the big track by Mehdi and Riton in 2o10 titled ‘Do Do Do’ that was made into a monster remix by the legendary Laidback Luke. Supporting her will be SF’s Trevor Simpson, as well as local LA talent from Mr. White, Thee Mike B, and Steve Prior.
We will also be holding down the GDD™ House Party room tonight with our friends from Techno Color Kids as well as the lovely ladies of TrippensoXx, so come have a drink with us in the room directly to the right of the front of the stage.
Please RSVP names and pluses to email@example.com to be on our discount ticket list for the evening. Please have all names submitted before 5:30pm. Discount for 21+ is $10 before 11pm.

What a fitting party to coincide with the temperature of Southern California this week! This Friday at the Avalon, T&B posterboy Drop The Lime will be making a stop on his “HOT AS HELL” tour, which is promoting Luca’s new track being released this November on Trouble & Bass. Accompanying the heat will be two of Dim Mak‘s finest: the hard-hitting Toronto tag team known as AutoErotique and the young gun who has been stickin’ it for the past year, SonicC. Prepare to experience some serious perspiration, and leave your cleanliness at home because this week is going to be a dirty one.

The Jamaican zombie killer personified by dance music giants Diplo & Switch will be zapping all y’all with some dancehall/electro lazerbeams this Friday at the Avalon in Hollywood, and I can safely say this will be even crazier than the Wolfgang Gartner night we had a couple weeks back. Supporting Major Lazer will be some of LA’s finest including Peace Treaty, Them Jeans, Mr. White, and ///BONES.

Hey everybody down south! We couldn’t get enough of San Diego so we’re headed back for a killer show at Voyeur tonight with Treasure Fingers, Mr. White, and ///BONES, thrown by the great people at LED Presents.
We’ll be hosting it along with our good friend from TheMixster.com
, so come on out to the Gaslamp district for some ol’ fashioned Fool’s Gold
And because I couldn’t give you a post without a tune today, here is a hot hot house track that I’ve been rockin’ in the headphones today. Big hands in the air moments. Gotta love it.
I was just thinking the other week, “I really hope that we can get another massive dubstep night going at CONTROL soon,” and fortunately my wish was granted as the don of LA dubstep, 12th Planet, will be headlining this Friday alongside a DJ set by NASA and a rare West Coast performance by Brooklyn producer Kingdom, who has just released a new EP on Night Slugs titled That Mystic. All you bassheads better be in attendance.
