Once I moved to downtown Denver about a year ago, I quickly learned about one of the city's longest running and best weekly dance parties, Lipgloss. Founded in 2001 as a once-a-month dance party Lipgloss has since bloomed to be the city's premier Friday night indie dance party, winning multiple "Best Club Night" awards since its inception. Current Lipgloss resident DJs boyhollow and option4 keep a good mix of electro, house, 80's, rock, indie and dubstep that keeps the dance floor flooded every week, but every so often, Lipgloss will bring in a national or international act to sweeten the deal.

Tonight is one of those nights, as Lipgloss is hosting a notorious name in the electro dance scene, Le Castle Vania. Le Castle Vania is from Atlanta, and has been on the scene since 2006. Since his modest beginnings as a young teenage warehouse rave DJ, he has become one of the hottest producers and DJs of electro house. Le Castle Vania combines hard electro and nu-disco mixed with elements from indie and punk rock to create a unique hard-hitting dance floor experience. Known for both his ability to create delicious original tracks and remixes, he uses the traditional DJ setup of two turntables and a mixer to command the dance floor. Check out "Awake".

Both boyhollow and option4 have been covered on this blog before, but this will be the first time I've covered the two at their home roost. option4 leans towards smoother and groovier yet extremely danceable house mixes while boyhollow is a little more eclectic with his song selection, going from house to hard electro to dubstep to just straight up rock that'll all keep the energy level high and the crowd on their toes. Both resident DJs should do well to keep the dance floor packed, and when Le Castle Vania hits the stage, expect the crowd to be completely slayed.

The party starts at Lipgloss, located at La Rumba (99 W. 9th Avenue). The doors open at 9:00PM and entry for this 21+ show is $9. If you have a Savoy or Lykke Li ticket stub, you get discounted entry so come after-party!
