DANCE CLUB PICK: WIG OUT WIG ON
A DJ appearance by The Crystal Method always shines, not only because of Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland's multifaceted TCM style, but for the other artists they mix in, many of whom also happen to be collaborators. Expect to hear the duo's diverse groovers old and new, plus multiple takes on "Sine Language" (featuring LMFAO), which they recently compiled into a one-song-remix EP with versions from Richard Vission, Future Funk Squad and others. Avalon, 1735 Vine St., Hlywd.; Fri., Nov. 19. avalonhollywood.com. Saturday, a more performance-oriented dance night gets heads sweaty: Jean Natalia's Wig Out!, which celebrates its fifth anniversary with a "Red and White Ball" at a new venue. Quazar and the Bamboozled play, the club's hair-raising cabaret goes wild onstage and DJ Jason Savvy spins. Mezz (in the Alexandria Hotel), 501 S. Spring St., 2nd flr., dwntwn.; Sat., Nov. 20. myspace.com/wigoutgetyourwigon.
