Concerts and nightlife around the 209, July 16


0716SMcopperVideo killed the radio star. Then the Internet killed the MTV star.

The DJ, meanwhile, has evolved. He’s moved from plugging into a light pole at a street party, to keeping it down in the center of the group on stage, to being a superstar who tours solo. (Also, he has become a she in many noteworthy cases.)

Some DJs also are now taking their sets beyond the turntables by mixing video live. Laptop software allows DJs to play video clips on huge screens in a club as they keep the beats flowing through the speakers to the dance floor.

You can see examples of video mixing at two parties this weekend. On Friday, DJs Tease and Secret will be mixing video at Copper Rhino in Modesto. Click the flier for more info. On Saturday, DJ 2nd Nature will be on the mixer at Taste in Stockton. Details about his set can be found here.

Other events Friday:

Modesto: Hot and Wild Fridays at Modesto Sports Bar; Therapy at Aqua; 24 Hot at Fat Cat; Detour party at Miki Sushi; Sons of Champlin at The State; Electric Boogie party at Fat Cat.

Tracy: Suga Shane at the Great Plate

Stockton: A Moveable West, Rose Droll and Andrew Beahm and His Problems at the Plea for Peace Center; Lust party at Taste; Lincoln Center Live! at Lincoln Center; Full Circle at Fat’s.
