Weekend's best dance music: Laura Jones, LA Riots, Designer Drugs, 12th Planet and more
While Big Gigantic's sold-out show tomorrow night at Red Rocks is probably the most high profile show in town this weekend, there's plenty of other dance music and otherwise bustling nightlife to enjoy this weekend. From the shooting superstar Laura Jones to Designer Drugs at Bar Standard, the Dance Card to stacked like no other this weekend. Keep reading for the drop on the weekend's best nightlife.
LAURA JONES @ NORAD DANCE BAR | FRI, 9/28/12
A classically trained pianist who also sang and played cello and clarinet growing up, Laura Jones exploded onto the scene last year with releases on Leftroom and Visionquest; the songs "Love in Me" and "Live a Little" gained play on dance floors all over the planet, and she's been remixed by such heavyweights as Eats Everything, Maceo Plex and Kate Simko. Before she started producing floor-scorching tracks, this shooting star (who's based out of Leeds, England) was mixing them, weaving hypnotic webs that ensnare dancers for hours. There's no doubt she'll be using her talent for cross-pollination in the future, too: Expect to hear more of her gorgeous voice in her own production work as she builds up her catalogue. It's a coup to have her at House Fridays at NORAD Dance Bar this Friday, September 28, with P-Nut and Kevin Callison opening things up.
