It's Tuesday, and a fine day to dance your ass off to some of the best DJs in the biz.---
That's exactly what you have at The Complex tonight, with a four-DJ gig featuring some of the best turntablists around. It starts with local Flash & Flare, the winner of this year's CWMA DJ Spinoff, getting things started for the touring crew that follows. The headliner of the show is A-Trak, pictured, and he will undoubtedly kill, but don't be late for Kid Sister and The Gaslamp Killer, who are touring with him. The show starts at 9 p.m., and it's in the 21 Vertigo Room at The Complex.
Over at the Avalon Theater, pop-rockers Dredg headline, and you can expect a heavy dose of the band's new album Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy, produced by Dan the Automator. Joining them are The Dear Hunter, Balance and Composure and Trophy Fire for the 6:30 show.
SpyHop Records' first release of the year arrives with a CD release party Tuesday featuring singer/songwriter Joel Brown, who's been working on this album for a couple years now. Paralyzed since age 9, and writing songs since he was 15, the now-22-year-old Brown has a lot to say with his music.
And, of course, you can't ignore when Wu-Tang's Raekwon is in town; he'll be performing tonight at The Hotel/Elevate.
