Give Thanks

Delving deep into the holiday spirit, Give Thanks seeks to provide a guilt-free way for party-goers to dance the night away, while also offering an opportunity to do something nice for someone less fortunate. Held at Ruby Skye, this event features complimentary admission if you bring a new, unwrapped toy for donation, simple as that. Why not brighten a child's day who normally would have to go without, instead of paying a cover charge? Money well spent, plus you'll feel good doing it. The man of the hour, Mark Farina, will bring his signature Chicago house beats laced with jazzy undertones to the decks, throwing down like only he can. Get your booty to Ruby Skye and come Give Thanks for all the wonderful things in your life, while dancing to the one and only Mark Farina.

Club Lonely is one of the newer parties on the industrial techno circuit with local favorites like the ones that have gotten all lined up for you tonight like Vin Soul.

Venue: F8
DJs: DJ Three, Jeno Void, Michael Tello, Mozghan, JP Soul
Music: tech-house, deep house
Cover: no cover b4 10pm w/RSVP, $5 early bird tickets on RA, $10 otherwise


DJ Three has been called a DJ's DJ, the impetus of the entire Floridian dance scene, and the lead of Hallucinogen and Hallucienda. He has a lot of fun while doing it and has been known to hit the top of the Robot Heart truck at the Burn as well as pack Monarch's basement in months passed. While he currently resides in New York he brought his style from Miami where he created a slew of fans that have now spread to our fair coast. With this kind of top notch artist in our humble Wednesday party, well that is reason enough to show up. But when you consider that this is just for the few of us left in town and that almost no one has to wake up the following day for anything more important than setting the oven temp, it sounds like a pretty sure bet for a Wednesday. Support by locals like Wicked's Jeno Void and Housepitality's own Mikey Tello, this night will be a great way to kick off the nice, long weekend in style. (ML)

Cover: $15-20 presale
This Black Friday, don't waste your money in the stores. Instead, use it to go into the black with some of the darkest techno around. A personal favorite in terms of hard techno in the mind of this here humble writer. Back in the days of hardcore Berghain days and nights, Len Faki would knock her socks off (well more likely pants off, because damn can it get hot in there!) with his multi-layered sounds that are simultaneously pounding and psychedelic. His music deserves — if not needs — a brilliant soundsystem and a slew of loving dancers to make it shine and luckily that is exactly the treatment he will receive this Friday at Mighty. Whether it's in the annals of the techno church, in your headphones off the newest Ostgut Ton release, or here at Mighty, Len Faki, along with locals who keep the sound alive here, will be makin' it darker this Black Friday.

Music: house, techno, tech-house
Cover: $10 presale
Currently residing in his home of choice and calling, Berlin, Nick Hoppner skillfully balances, explores and contributes to a dramatically wide range of musical professions, proving him to be one of the backbones of today's house and techno underground. As a producer and DJ, Höppner displays all the characteristics of a life-long music lover. Sensitive to the history, emotions, stories and situations that derive from this music, for Nick the scope and eclecticism available within the 4/4 rhythm allows him great freedom to express his tastes and musical instincts. Throughout his five solo 12''s on Ostgut Ton, we find lush, uplifting house, deeply melodic techno dub sessions, spooky percussive workouts, and lashings of richly produced musical statements, always ably avoiding musical pigeonholes As a remixer too, Nick's passion for storytelling comes through with great enthusiasm, as his interpretations of Asusu on Livity Sound, Dauwd on Pictures Music or Airhead on Brainmath have all shown.

Join the Devotion crew at Public Works' Loft for a special holiday gathering featuring Worthy of Dirtybird alongside Ruben Mancias and David Harness. With an in-depth knowledge of production, mixing, and performance, Worthy has the insight to play for his audience, cultivating intense positive energy on the dance floor. From salty aired islands to dark club basements, over the past 10 years, Worthy has paid reverence to the traditional form of classic house while tripping off the mark and sinking into the euphoric less-charted territories of booty-clapping bass. As Carl Cox said, "The Worthy sound has always been powerful, rocking, funky, bass-driven music at its best, and for me this is the new wave in house music." He establishes an energetic dance floor camaraderie that makes even the most skeptic hater's booty shake.

DJs: Xanopticon, Wake, Alexandernaut, Dr. Rek, Mggey Pain
Music: IDM
Cover: $5
Don't be a smart ass when you listen to the off-kilter sounds that have come to be known as Intelligent Dance Music. Sure, the name is snobbery defined, but the music sure doesn't have to be! That's the impetus behind IDP, the intelligent dance party that doesn't take itself too seriously other than having a seriously good time. On the bill tonight is Pittsburgh's Xanopticon, whose tunes exude a mixture of dancefloor madness and neuron destabilizers. Also on the bill is Oakland's Wake (an IDP fave), and Alexandernaut of Gray Area, that bastion of electronic music as art, noise, and experience. (ML)
