Over the Weekend: Z-Trip DJ Hero Battle, Fire Marshal Shuts Down Warehouse Party, Human Nature at it's Finest
So much for our brief Fall fling with rainy weather, this weekend was hot in more ways than one: L.A. Weekly battled Z-Trip in Las Vegas for DJ Hero, got kicked out of a downtown warehouse party by the fire marshal, and indulged our (wo)man vs. wild tendencies at the Serendipity party. Read on for more of what we did and who we saw...
It's human nature
Yeah, yeah, we know. Partygoers in L.A. love any excuse to hit the town in costume. Treetop Productions calls Serendipity "the most unique party experience in L.A." The interactive multimedia event took place downtown on Saturday and featured aerial dancers, music by Carlos Niño of Dublab and Anthony Valadez of KCRW, costumed fashions by Threadbare, stilt walkers, and more. View more photos in Colin Young-Wolff's "Human/Nature Party @ Serendipity" slideshow.
DJ Z-Trip landed in Las Vegas this weekend to debut his new residency at Rain, the high-profile club at the Palms. (Paul Oakenfold does every Saturday night at Rain.) The LA-based Z-Trip is filling the slot left vacant by the late DJ AM. Z-Trip dedicated his set on Friday night to his fallen friend. The night before, Z-Trip demoed the highly anticipated new DJ Hero video game with West Coast Sound's Randall Roberts. The two had a virtual DJ battle. Read who prevailed over at West Coast Sound and view more photos in Randal Roberts' "Z-Trip in Vegas: DJ Hero Battle and Residency Debut at The Palms" slideshow.
They weren't on the list
In seven years of throwing some of the hottest underground parties in town, Droid Behavior has managed to escape the inevitable visit from the fire marshal, something that even a lot of above-ground clubs can't claim. That all changed on Saturday night when the techno-loving crew celebrated the anniversary of its popular monthly bash, Interface.
