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.
— 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+)
