Denver dance community rallies to raise funds for promoter Scott Christensen this weekend
Catch Christian Martin this weekend and help out a good friend of the scene.
This weekend, Christian Martin is coming to NORAD Dance Bar. And while this was noteworthy enough to us to feature Martin's appearance in this week's Scratchin the Surface, if you ask NORAD owner Preston Douglas, there's a bigger, much more important reason to head to his club this weekend. A few weeks ago, a good friend of the scene was seriously injured and he's in need of help. Keep reading to get the full details and more on how you can help.
According to Douglas, a fellow promoter with whom he's frequently partnered with, Scott Christensen, recently survived an accident that left him with serious burns to 40 percent of his body. Christensen, says Douglas, "has been the driving force behind many underground events," and as such, Douglas and other prominent members of the scene have banded together to raise funds for Christensen and his family with a two-day event at NORAD.
The cover on Saturday is just $10, and the entire proceeds of the door and a percentage of sales at the bar are being earmarked to directly benefit Christiensen and his family. The night kicks off at 9 p.m. with sets by Christian Martin, Ardalan and Option4. Sunday afternoon, there is no cover and Martin and Ardalan will perform encore sets with a host of other DJs. Full lineup below.
