Here's the bad news: Summer's fading fast. The good? Even as fall approaches, L.A. is a flurry of fun things to do. This weekend is no exception; once again, we have multiple picks because there's just too much good stuff to limit ourselves to one.
On Friday, Rhondavous (A Club Called Rhonda's special supersized soiree) brings to downtown's 333 Live one of the biggest dance-floor shakers around, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and DFA Records. Expect his extended set to inspire disco-rific polysexual partying all night long.
On Saturday, one of our fave ragers, Studio 69, hosts its annual Uniform Night, which features DJs spinning dubstep -- and you better believe everyone will be dressed to express, with naughty nurses, naughty schoolgirls and naughty UPS workers all expected to make an appearance.
Finally, on Sunday, Echo Park Rising, the hot weekend of free music in that neighborhood, comes to a close. There's only one place to dance it away: Part Time Punks' after-party at the Echo, which will be serving up retro dance sounds during its '80s Mixtape Night.
