Dance Club Pick: Vitalicious
Niteshift joins forces with Jellybean Recordings and Nitty Gritty for a good-to-the-last-drop deep-house and disco sweatfest featuring NYC's Jovonn and Hosanna Littlebird live, plus Scott K., Juan Hoerni and Joseph Munguia. El Cid, 4212 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A.; Fri., Oct. 1. niteshiftjovonnandhosanna.eventbrite.com. The next night, a visual and sonic assault is virtually guaranteed when Vitalic (aka Dijon–born-and-bred DJ producer Pascal Arbez Nicolas) invades El Rey with his epic-electro production, "The V Mirror Show." Like fellow French techno pioneers Daft Punk, Vitalic — who'll be pumping brutal nuggets from his latest, Flash Mob — offers a majestic and manic spectacle that demands both attention and movement. Also with Teenage Bad Girl and Franki Chan. El Rey, 5515 Wilshire Blvd., L.A.; Sat., Oct. 2. theelrey.com. And finally, a fab dance fete for gay clubbers rounds out the week: the third anniversary of Metro Mondays, featuring a slew of queens and a hot homo hookup scene. Fubar, 7994 Santa Monica Blvd., W.L.A.; Mon., Oct. 4. See this week's Nightranger for more Metro info or check fubarla.com.
