PSYCHEMAGIK'S "DREAMS"-Y DISCO
The record-collecting fiends behind British duo Psychemagik have infiltrated the global club circuit via crowd-pleasing remixes/reedits of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams," the Yardbirds' "For Your Love" (via Chilly), and other nostalgia-triggering tunes. As their name implies, Psychemagik imbue everything they touch with a lush, intensely vivid detail in the arrangements and orchestrations. Theirs is a classy breed of disco that also revels in mucking around with the masses. All this and a methodically rump-shaking track called "Ass Nation"? Yup. With SlowpØke DJs and Trouble. Q, 9 pm, free, 21+.
RISKY DISCO WITH BANKIE PHONES, AIRPORT, AND CRYSTAL HELL POOL
Sam Melancon's superb Motor night moves to Electric Tea Garden after a rewarding stint at Lo-Fi. Familiar Motor figures Airport (aka Jayson Kochan) and Crystal Hell Pool (aka Chris Majerus) bring their distinctive versions of disco and drone to the low-ceilinged decadence den that is ETG.
