Dealing with June, which brought waves of heat instead of days of gloom, prompted us to sit tight alongside the humming of an air conditioning unit, albeit that gorgeous evening breeze the Solstice’s Strawberry Moon brought in. Sometimes, we need a jolt of heat that jumpstarts the part of our brain that moves us towards a party. And, as June winds down and firecrackers ring in July, we’ve got the dance floors—or tiny spaces near a stage or pool—that’ll keep you cultured from day to night to the wee hours of the morning. It’s called getting housed, with a little help from our friends:
Wrap up June with a guaranteed jam-packed lineup of some of the best in dance music with the Midnight In Paris Record Label launch BANGER at SkyBar on Sunday, June 26th. The day to night event will jumpstart your nearing fireworks lineup and is presented by Ouija Entertainment and L’Affaire Musicale. RSVP now, it’s free and almost sold out.
The Knocks come knocking on Saturday, July 2nd with special guests NVDES (DJ set) in Wicked Delight, yet again at the infamous SkyBar—along with a slew of talent behind the decks. Hi, Astley! Get all up on this, cause magic hour will guarantee firework viewpoints across LA.
Celebrate another movement toward freedom, self-expression and independence with A Club Called Rhonda’s #RHONDESIA. Again, at the hot poolside ticket, SkyBar. If you’re late to the Rhonda game, head here to get schooled, then book it. Oh OH OHHHHH: Our music editor Garth Trinidad will be behind the decks as his dope music duo iteration, Trinidad Senolia.
If you’re on the west side, there’s no other place to be on July 3rd than Bergamot Station for the heavy-hitting, crowd-pleasing, musically aligned U.R. Art Festival. Sustainable, kid and dog-friendly, fashion and accessory pop-ups, house music masters along with HOJ and a very special secret guest, yoga sessions and nostalgic memory making vibes present themselves. Dig the details.
Another west side story: Venice Gets Deep at Townhouse with our main man (legend) Marques Wyatt. The house music LA staple event will set the tone as the official U.R. Art Fest afterparty, but you can hit this dance floor after any daytime location you’ve attended—and if you’ve never experienced this, now’s your chance to GET DEEP.
