Dance Card: Big Bang explodes at the Coliseum, Serge Devant, Simon Baker and more!
Tonight and tomorrow night at the Denver Coliseum, the Big Bang dance music massive will be going off representing pretty much every genre of electronic music. Given the size and scope of the show (four stages per night) - along with the massive investment in the lighting and sound for the show - this is well worth the look.
For Friday, the line-up includes Donald Glaude, Darude, Bunny (Rabbit in the Moon), Elite Force, Jelo, Paul Anthony, and many more. The Saturday's bill includes Al-P of MSTRKRFT, Calvin Harris, Hatiras, Starkillers, Will Bailey and Santiago & Bushdo, among others. Tickets for the event, which runs from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. range from $35 for one day pass to $50 for two-day pass.
Also on Saturday, Serge Devant will be slinging his tunes at Beta in Denver. Born in Russia, raised in New York City, Devant first gained notoriety with the hit track "Addicted," which was followed closely by the album, Wanderer - both of which showcase his talent is for progressive house music. If you're looking for some fresh haus, make sure to check him out. (18+, free before 11pm for 21+, $10 after 11pm, 9pm-2am)
The Whomp Truck makes another appearance tonight at First Friday. This week, special guest Fisk joins Whomp Truck strongmen Just Ben, Citrus and Coult 45. Come see why the milk truck-turned-mobile sound system recently won our Best Monthly Party award. Look for the revelry on the corner of 7th and Santa Fe, or just listen for the whomp-bass. (free, all ages)
