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.

Portland is finally starting to heat up, so on Thursday night check out Club Culo, a cumbia, chicha and reggaeton party at Black Book. DJs Beyonda, Te Amo, Ill Camino and Papi Chulo will show you how hot it gets in Bogotá. (8:30 pm, $3 before 11 pm, $5 after, 21+)  

For more latin flavor with four-on-the-floor beats, head to the Rose on Thursday for the latin house edition of Flight. Selector Coast2C brings some Mexico City flavors along with Jose Sosa, Mario Maroto and Demetre Baca. (9 pm, $5, 21+)        
Though they might be shooting themselves in the foot with the name Body Party—I could still probably listen to Ciara and the remixes all night—the newfound Thursday night slot at Holocene promises fun, cross-genre jams. Veteran DJs Holla n Oates, Ben Tactic and Chrome Wolves rock your bahdaaay. (9 pm, free, 21+)      
If you’ve never been to a vogue ball, you’ve gotta check out Rotture on Friday. Portland’s realest queens will be strutting their stuff to the vogue house tunes of SPF666. (9 pm, $10 advance, $15 day of show, 21+)     
Dirtybird Records founder Worthy is the type of artist you can brag about seeing at such an intimate (and weird) venue as Tonic Lounge. Saturday night is the release party for his new LP Disbehave, a collection of weird and soulful house that’s definitely worthy of Worthy. (9 pm, $10, 21+)     
DJ Hoodboi is leading Jersey club away from the prisons of Newark’s CD-Js and into the light of the internet. Even a recent remix of T-Pain’s “Bartender”—a song released some seven years ago—finds new places to go with the track. Catch him on Saturday at Holocene’s Verified. (9 pm, free before 11 pm with RSVP, $7 after 11 pm, 21+)     
After partying the weekend away, it’s time to seek sanctuary—Sanctuary Sunday at Lightbar, that is. Etbonz, Wayne and Tired Universe will swirl and arpeggiate your wildest synth dreams, with resident DJs Mike Jedlicka and Elias Foley filling in the gaps. (8 pm, free, 21+)
