SOUNDS OF OM
If you follow the wide world of electronic music even slightly, then you're probably familiar with the high quality of artists and releases by San Francisco based OM Records, who release a wide range of music, from house to Afro/bossa nova to hiphop. Uniting Souls and OM Records are bringing a monthly party to Seattle, which means spring is off to a good start. Tonight's featured DJ is J-Boogie of San Francisco. Also on the bill is a DJ set by Quazar and a live set by Sky Lobby. The Baltic Room 1207 Pine St, 625-4444, 9 pm-2 am, $8.
WE STILL LOVE FRIDAYS
As long as Chris Fields is doin' his skit-skat brotha man dance, the party is on! The crowd here is always hyper about house, making it feel like you're in on the kinda good thing that everyone else is missing. Bryon Lyons and Phil Anthony DJ tonight. The Corner Bar, Second & Virginia, 269-6388, 10 pm-2 am, $5.
DJ Marques Wyatt has been rockin' it for over 15 years, inspiring house fans with residencies at L.A.'s Deep and Revival and San Francisco's Release. He's headlined alongside the Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, and Doc Martin, and he'll be in town tonight promoting his new album, For Those Who Like to Get Down. Say no more! Brent Laurence and Reid Okumora round out the bill. The Baltic Room, 1207 Pine St, 625-4444, 9 pm-2 am.
If you've heard Brian Weber DJ at Beatfreak or Broken Beats, or seen him perform with Dub Narcotic Sound System and Dead Presidents back in the day, you'll know that he has a true understanding for both playing music and spinning records. Personally, I love it when he throws down soul hammers, which I'm sure he'll do tonight in the Alibi Room's basement bar. The crowd ranges from hipsters to stray tourists. The Alibi Room, 85 Pike St, 623-3180, 10 pm-2 am, free.
