Portland's Best Dance Music Options, May 1-7

believeyoumeCoyoti plays Believe You Me on Friday at the Rose. - Melinda Ocelot.
In this column, WW music calendar editor 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. 

On Thursday, Mark E. Quark returns to the Rose for another round of Folding|Space. For fans of funky West Coast house, it doesn’t get much better than the San Diego head, who’s bringing the margarita vibe up from California at the most weather-appropriate time. (8 pm, $7, 21+)     
If you’re in the know, Praliciven is an exclusive concept at Black Book on Thursday with Miracles Club, DJ Zack, SPF666 and Commune. Casual partygoers be forewarned: Those without the right connections or a “futuristic nude/pastel costume” may be turned back onto the Old Town streets. (9 pm, $10, 21+)       

Tickets are sold out, but just in case you got too turnt up last weekend to remember you bought tickets, the Glitch Mob plays Friday at the Roseland. (8 pm, sold out, all ages, god help us)  

There’s deep house and there’s Coyoti deep house, waist deep in the thick and weird mud of the side stage at your favorite festival. He’ll be joined by the Believe You Me crew on Friday at the Rose. (9 pm, $5 before 10 pm, $8 after, 21+)      
Underground house and techno raver OG Frankie Bones may be slowly making his way into the mainstream, but somehow his show on Saturday at AudioCinema snuck right under my radar until only recently. It’s $30, but the rave vibes are in full effect: Prizes will be given to the PLUR-est attendees. (8 pm, $30, 18+)     
Rabit has been forcibly relocating the home of grime from Bow, London to Houston, Texas. His ice-cold deconstructions on last year’s pair of EPs, Double Dragon and Sun Showers, push grime’s decentralized beats to their most esoteric limits, but still manages to pull something beautiful out of his hat. See him on Wednesday at Holocene. (9 pm, free before 10 pm, $5 after, 21+)
