My how I enjoy triple headliner nights at CONTROL. This week we have 3 fantastic international acts that have really had an amazing last year. Out of Jakarta, Angger Dimas has finally made his way to the United States in the past 12 months, playing shows all over the country with his Afrojack-esque style. Swedish duo Cazzette joined up with Avicii and the At Night family this past year and are on their way to becoming the next big thing out of Scandinavia. Finally, CONTROL frequenter, Sharooz, is back in Hollywood to show the Avalon crowd what he does best. Lots of good music to be heard on Friday, indeed.

TONIGHT the Avalon in Hollywood will play host to a mind-blowing, highly anticipated live set from Ed Banger‘s SebastiAn. It’s been over 4 years since the last time I saw SebastiAn when he played one of the best dance music events I’ve ever attended. Yes, that would be Daft Punk, Ratatat, SebastiAn, and Kavinksy at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles in July of 2007. With a newly orchestrated live set as well as supporting sets from Sharooz, Destructo, Brazzabelle, and Andy D’Arrigo, I’m sure this will be a night of CONTROL to remember.
