SAT | ROB PAINE at THE FUSION FACTORY | 2/1/14
Some musicians are such activists for the artistic community in their neck of the woods that their names become part and parcel of the scene in that particular place -- and that's exactly what Rob Paine has done in Philadelphia. His early exposure to reggae and dub sounds contributed to his unique sound, which takes the deep, soulful nature of dub­inspired music and fuses it with the faster pace and more synthetic tunes of house and techno...and Paine's been making those connections since well before "dub" became an electronic­ music buzzword. He's the mastermind behind Worship Recordings, and not only can he spin a set that will captivate a dance floor for hours, but he also produces most of the work that comes out of the Worship house.

FRI | FALCON PUNCH at BAR STANDARD | 1/31/14

Denver Disco resident DJ Falcon Punch -- or Avery Henderson, as he's known to his family back home in Minnesota -- recently moved to Boulder from Los Angeles. After graduating from Occidental College, where he majored in sociology and minored in music, he took a job at an ad agency in Boulder and immediately tuned into the local music scene. Through a friend, he found the Denver Disco thread, submitted some music and earned a spot in the crew. Combining his fluency in bass, guitar and piano, Falcon Punch is reviving the funk and disco movements by inserting a modern, upbeat tempo into the flavors that founded the best dance-music era of them all. (9 p.m., 21+, $5-$10) -- Britt Chester
