Avalon's Signature Clubnight Dances Into Year Five
Saturday marks five years of Avaland, the signature clubnight of historical nightspot, Avalon. This space has been a hotbed for music since 1927, and become a big player in global DJ culture this decade. Each Saturday night (and Sunday morning,) superjocks from the worlds of techno and house make good use of the venue's hard-to-get afterhours license. Booka Shade, Tiefschwarz, Sander Kleinenberg, and Steve Angello are all regulars. No wonder the UK's DJ Mag named it 40th in world’s best clubs. Saturday features techno-posterboy Steve Bug, as well as Adultnapper, Dan Berkson and James What, plus Avaland residents Droog. Doors open at 10 p.m. and shut at 8 a.m. Wow.
