Aurora Halal and DJ Python represent two extremes of techno—one fast-paced and athletic, the other slow and steady, both hypnotic. We don't have anything particularly spooky or any Halloween puns to throw down here, but rest assured this is a fine way to spend your Halloween with two of America's most beloved underground DJs.
The Black Lodge, like many promoters, has been mulling over its return to the underground, and their post-reopening debut is appropriately thoughtful and community-based. The evening-to-morning event includes a record release show for Dave Aju's new Elbow Grease imprint, a conversation with key Detroit and UR affiliates Claude Young, Sean Deason and Nomadico and, naturally, a party 'til dawn.
Levon Vincent is one of the key figures in post-millennial dance music, perfecting a lumbering yet subtle house that was forged in New York before having a massive impact on the European stage. He's just as remarkable as a DJ, making this rare LA appearance a can't miss for the heads.
The CDMX y Los Ángeles gay party Por Detroit pays respect to the incalculable loss of the past 18 months with a mix of solemnity and celebration in the spirit of Día de Muertxs. Lumber Jack, Perfect Lovers, Victor Rodriguez and a phalanx of hosts will be on hand to summon the dead with sound and hedonism.
Another major Halloween lineup from the Minimal Effort squad topped by two major forces in LA dance music—All Day I Dream's Lee Burridge and the inimitable DJ Harvey. Add the likes of Red Axes and Atish across two stages at the striking, historic Globe Theater and you have all the ingredients for a Halloween blowout to remember.
