THURSDAY NOVEMBER 7



BENT

Remember techno--the American musical art form that feels like it's been kicked to the curb? Well dry your eyes because Aristocrat's is trying to bring the techno party back. With the popularity of electro sounds these days, I hope this night flourishes--otherwise we'll just have to fly our asses to Europe to get our techno fix. W/DJs Terso, Xanen, and iMonk. Aristocrat's, 220 Fourth Ave, 748-9779, 9 pm-2 am, 21+, $5.

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 8



SELECTION

DJ Doug and his guest are up in Fremont trying to get all of those socks 'n' Teva wearin' hippies worked up into a frenzy with some head-bobbing house music. If you live farther north than Capitol Hill, you might want to swing by this little lounge. ToST, 513 N 36th St, 547-0240, 9 pm-2 am, 21+, free.

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 9



FRESH

Minty magazine and Uniting Souls are throwing a party at Re-bar.

YO SON!

Yup, this is still one of the most fun hiphop nights in Seattle. FYI: Did you know that in Germany they call hiphop nights "black sound"? Cool huh! Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000, 9 pm-2 am, 21+, $5.
