There are some great gay dance clubs out there — and even greater DJs — but a lot of them play it safe. Diva pop, radio hip-hop and typical techno and disco are the mainstays, and not just in WeHo.
DJ Paul V, known for his dance-floor powers at seminal gay/mixed clubs such as Dragstrip 66 and SPIT, has never been one to follow the herd. With Man Machine, he and DJ Tommy Rocker take over the Faultline every first Saturday, veejaying with future and retro-electronic sounds and visuals. Expect everything from synth-pop to electroclash to new beat to industrial to EDM. It’s a bionic beatdown for boys, their boy-toys and pals of all persuasions. “Go-go-bots” add to the homo-electro vibes.
4216 Melrose Ave., Silver Lake, Sat., Jan. 3, 9 p.m.-2 a.m., $5. More info here.
