Global grooves, old timey goth gatherings, hip music fests and a rare appearance by a disco queen; October kicks off with an outrageously enchanting array of events. Fall's in full swing club scene-wise. Charge in.

Fri., Oct. 7

Danceteria is back for one night, bring multilingual electropop, europop, post-punk, eighties new wave, and euro disco with it. The party -- born out of popular early-2000 dance hap Par Avion -- will leave you a sweaty mess on the dance floor, courtesy of Professor Possessor, Dani Shivers (Mexico) and Maurice de la Falaise. At Los Globos, 3040 W Sunset Blvd. Silver Lake. www.clublosglobos.com

Expect underground vibes and major dance debauchery at Downtown 81, featuring live per-formances by the Secret Society of the Sonic Six and Myrrh Ka Ba, plus guest DJ Robert Disaro (Disaro Records) and DJ Luscious. "Kinky games" and "billiards" are promised. At Silver Factory Studios, 4310 W. Jefferson Blvd. Downtown. Facebook invite here.

Sat., Oct. 8

Indie rock fans will flock to Culture Collide this weekend, but there will be great DJ talent on hand too, especially at the Dance Right stage on Saturday, which will feature DJ Harvey (Sar-castic Disco), Classixx (Kitsune) and Them Jeans. Echo Park. Full line-up and info. at www.culturecollide.com

Billed as "villainous vaudeville of bawdy burlesque, music, mischief and mayhem," Voltaire's Black Unicorn Cabaret is a stage spectacle featuring three live music acts -- Voltaire, Hellblinki and This Way to Egress -- plus dancers and DJs from the dark side at Bar Sinister. As always, "Gothic-Gaultier-chic, alternative/upscale black, fetish or futuristic attire" is strongly suggested. At Boardner's, 1652 N Cherokee Ave. Hollywood. www.barsinister.net
