Recommended If: You enjoy the more melodic and progressive side of techno/tech house with a strong all female opening lineup.
Where: Monarch, 6/17
Sounds Like: DFA, Lindstrom, Holy Ghost!, Hercules & Love Affair, Simian Mobile Disco, Matthew Dear
Recommended If: You love disco and nu-disco gone warehouse. The Juan Maclean's album material (with LCD Soundsystem's Nancy Whang) tends towards glittering, synth heavy disco, but his solo DJ sets take a well-informed distinctly pure house and techno feel. An underrated selector.
