Portland's Best Dance Music Options, Dec. 12-18

In this new column, WW music calendar and contributing writer Mitch Lillie helps the discerning club-goer put together their weekly calendar by compiling Portland's best dance-music options for the next seven days. Turn up, tune in, drop the bass. 

— Though holiday choral concerts may be bursting forth with seasonal cheer, they’re totally putting a damper on dance parties. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any, though, they’re just generally a bit smaller, like the Futro Mag 1.2 release party Thursday night at cozy little Tube. Futro’s own DJ Koolaid mans the decks while their MCs mob the mics. Special Gem Droppin’ guest Rap Class will also be in attendance, and $10 will get you a very next-level comp. (10 pm, Free, 21+) 

— If you want something big and wobbly coming down your chimney, Phutureprimitive at Branx will get you on the good list Friday night. (9 pm, $12, 21+). Even the naughty ones will have to choose tonight: Assassinate a booty with Stay At Home Mob’s hip-hop at Black Book (10 pm, Free, 21+), or get incestual at Holocene as Ecstasy and Club Chemtrail breed to form one massive, pretty/ugly future bass sound. SPF666’s satanic grime tones might convince you, but there’s also pretty little Lord Baby to baptize you in holy jungle excrement. (9 pm, $5, 21+).

— I don’t know about you, but I would pretty much sell my firstborn to anyone who has even touched Nicholas Jaar. I’ll assume former classmate James Hinton, a.k.a. the Range, has. James, name your price. (Saturday, 9 pm, $5, 21+)
