Dance Club Pick: Endless Summer
Good news. Summer may be over, but Sunday afternoon's best dance party, The Do-Over, is extending its mixed bag of sangria specials, BBQ and surprise biggie DJ talents through the fall. Still, we recommend you check out the Stones Throw(n) throw-down while the weather is still nice out. This one is all about patio jamming. Crane's Hollywood Tavern, 1611 El Centro Ave.; Sun., Sept. 19, and Sundays through October. blog.thedoover.net/info. Another outdoor dance party, Afternoon Delight, does call it quits for the season this Saturday, with sounds courtesy of Lisa Shaw, Tony Powell, Adam Auburn, West Coast Collective and many others, all spinning poolside. Don't miss this last splash. Custom Hotel, 8639 Lincoln Blvd., L.A.; Sat., Sept. 18. homemadela.com. And for an entirely different — but equally sweaty — scene, the Echoplex's the place to be as Bootie L.A.'s got an extrasmashing mash-up this week: Tranzkontinental, which features a rotating cast of drag queens on the mic ripping through medleys of classic rock & roll and new electro-pop, plus gold-bodysuited dance troupe RAID and Bootie's resident DJs keeping things bumping on the floor. 1154 Glendale Blvd., Echo Park; Sat., Sept. 18. bootiemashup.com/la.
