The electronic and house music scenes are really having a moment right now. With the second iteration of The Flycatcher's Chateau Disco night happening last week and another year of the Gem and Jam Festival on the horizon, dance music fans have plenty of reasons to get out of the house (the kind you live in) and into the clubs lately.
Now, two other subsets of the rapidly growing local electronic community are taking over Tucson venues this week. On Saturday, Jan. 23, you can dance the night away at Solar Culture Gallery (31 E. Toole Ave.) with Dazed & Confused. The Dazed Till Dawn event will run from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. the next morning, offering an overnight, 18-and-over experience. DJs for the event include Michelle Sparks, Hades 2 and resident DJs Ben Olayinka and Eliogold. Cover is $5.
You can keep the party going on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at Club Congress (311 E. Congress St.) for the first iteration of Bank Notes. Featuring the Old Pueblo's "leftfield electronic outsider club music," the new series will kick off with a DJ set from altrice, as well as performances from local ambient, experimental and electronic artists Ryan Chavira, Wet Marble, Eric Schlappi, grey sweater audio and sunfucked. Music runs from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. Bank Notes Vol. 1 is free and it is a 21 and over event.
