There's so much big stuff going on this weekend — Massives, Mansions, Avalon parties, sweaty packed clubz — that it's very tempting, if not necessary, to cower from all the huge stuff and head to something more manageable. Yes, sweat and Basement Jaxx makes for a good combo, as does sweat and Hot Chip. But sweat and a rare Flying Lotus DJ set? At the great Calling All Kids night Hyperion Tavern? With DJ Nobody? For free? That's the kind of Friday afternoon solution that's so damn tempting that we're contemplating bailing on the big stuff to get us some beat frenzy action. It doesn't hurt that Hyperion sells Hoegaarden, either.

Look, there are no wrong answers. But there are most certainly good solutions. This might be the best one of the night.
