Prefixed with words like nu, cosmic, Italo or psychedelic,” the U.K. disco sensation known as Horse Meat Disco has been huge in bringing back retro floor vibes, and now they’re coming to L.A. as part of a Record Release Tour. They gallop into Shits & Giggles this Friday. At Monte Cristo, 659 S. Westmoreland. Tix at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/73588 . Club 740, S&G’s former home, is that same night debuting a new party, called Discoteque, put on by Matt Goldman (Dance Right) and Gary Richard (Hard). For the debut, they’ve got Parisian pumper Dan Rimini, plus Classixx, Acid Girls and more. 740 Broadway. www.discotequeparty.com . Goldman was also formerly with Control, the other big Friday night party, still going strong at Avalon (now co-promoted by Dance’s Jason Lavitt), and that club happens to have a strong lineup the same night: locals LA Riots and Hearts Revolution. 1735 Vine St. https://www.myspace.com/controlfridays . All above on Friday, Aug. 31. And we thought Saturdays were incestuous and competitive! For those not sure which to choose, let us break it down for ya. Control is 18 and older, attracting a fun, but all-over-the-place cluster of kiddies; Discoteque is 21 and polder, and downtown, so expect a slightly more mature, underground scene; S&G is mixed — gay and straight — in a medium-sized space, and the crowd is always colorful, crazy fun.
