December 6, 2012
2012 was the year that electronic dance music blew up -- at least in the eyes of the mainstream media and the Grammys. Still though, it was undoubtedly a good year for the genre, from the dubstep purveyors to the beat scene to the underground. Here's a look back at EDM parties large and small -- and the people who fill the dancefloor -- from coast to coast this year.

  • Air Guitar Championship Semifinals @ The Troubadour
    The Southwest Semifinals of the US Air Guitar Championship were held last Saturday at the historic Troubadour Club in West Hollywood. The event determined who would compete as regional representatives at the 2014 National Finals in Kansas City on August 9th. The colorful contestants (many of whom opted for elaborate codpieces) were judged by comedians Kristen Schaal and the Sklar Brothers. The top score was awarded to crowd-surfing guitarist Kingslayer, the mother of a teenage son who also competed wearing little more than an American flag bathing suit. All photos by Gustavo Turner.
