The weekend's best dance music: Pete Bones, Beats Antique, Paco Osuna and more
Catch Pete Bones tonight an Electric Pony installment at the Appaloosa Grill
Is it Halloween already? Why, yes, you bet your sweet trick-or-treat it is -- and the proof is in the ridiculous amount of talent that's landing on the city this weekend, including Pete Bones, Beats Antique and Paco Osuna, among others. Whatever costume you have picked out, hopefully you can move in it, because it's going to be hard to keep still with the beats blowing out the speakers. Keep reading for a full rundown of what awaits you on this weekend's Dance Card.
Pete Bones (aka the Shaker) has more than earned his nickname; this DJ/producer has been upheaving dance floors since he turned his residency at the Hand & Spear in Surrey, England, into a legendary party night back in 1990. Since that time, he's gained worldwide acclaim with his own releases, as well as producing and remixing dozens of global hits and then reinventing his sound with Red Ant Records in 1998. Throughout the twenty-year-plus span of Bones's career, his skills have only gotten sharper -- a testament to his impeccable taste and sense of timing. This is complex, layered house music, full of smooth, funky bass lines and hip-shaking beats, that will ensnare even the most devoted technophiles before they realize what's happened to them. Denver will host two dates with this longtime legend this weekend -- one tonight at the Appaloosa Grill, and one at the Funky Buddha on Saturday, October 27.
