Mix Downtown1531 L St.
Sacramento, CA 95814
Motivation: Producer/deejay the Juan Maclean is responsible for ass-spiring club tracks, including “Give Me Every Little Thing” off his ’05 debut, Less Than Human. Not swayed? Then let’s talk money: If you want to see the DFA Records artist and James Murphy bud but are broke as all hell, you can a) show up to Mix Downtown before 11 p.m. and get in free, or b) RSVP for a ridiculously affordable $5 at www.going.com. Because c) if you miss out on the debut of DJ Shaun Slaughter’s new, monthly, Thursday-night dance series Lights Down Low at Mix, you’ll be a d) dumbass without e) any excuses. And you might as well go f) yourself. 1531 L Street, www.thejuanmaclean.com.
