Allnight June 03 2004

A quick guide to what's happening in nightlife each week

Need help meeting people?

Finally, someone figured out that while the rest of the city now sleeps a little earlier, there is a patch of land east of Atlanta that can party till the wee hours. The DJs behind the *KISS* Rock Parties are changing venues once again, this time hitting the Decatur Square every Friday starting June 4, for the DECATUR SOCIAL CLUB, a party that goes until its 4 a.m. last call. These guys like to find the beat in that hipster-loving indie and ol' school (to some of us) '80s. But it's mostly their prerogative as far as what you're tapping your feet to. But remember, the key is late night. Remember late night?

Free. 21 and up. 11 p.m. Azul, 141 Sycamore St., 404-377-3311.

The humpty dance

L.A. veteran DJ RICHARD "HUMPTY" VISSION is all about the Big Floor Funk, also the name of his new CD. So expect to be physically bombarded by bangin' beats and bulbous bass as Vission plays a small venue Sat., June 5. This guy loves to pack as much punch through the EQ and into your skull as his bulging record collection and set will allow. His marathon quick cuts could go anywhere from big room house to filter funk to frantic trance twitches to jump-up drum 'n' bass jitters, especially with MATT "STARBOY" SILLIMAN also behind the decks.

Call for time and ticket price. The Mark, 79 Poplar St., 678-904-0050. www.themarkatlanta.com.

Give a hoot

You've eaten its wings and you've flown its planes, all for the perk(ie)s, but this Sat., June 5. at the Tabernacle, your favorite super softcore franchise is showing a little extra leg, and maybe the occasional nipple or two. Tonight, the HOOTERS INTERNATIONAL SWIMSUIT COMPETITION REGIONAL FINALS takes place at the former church (kinda like the Gold Club thing in reverse) as local finalists from all over the Southeast vie to win a trip to Miami and a chance to become international champion. Atlanta is home to 2002's international champion, and the whole city could give up its "DeGarmo fever" to get behind a lovely (and legal) bikini-clad hopeful.

$15-$17.50. 8 p.m. The Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St., 404-659-9022 www.atlantaconcerts.com/tabernacle.html.


Can you feel it ... intensify?

Seattle's DONALD GLAUDE wasn't scared to name one of his mix CDs Off the Hook. Nor is he scared to bring the same level of intensity to each and every gig. House, tech, tribal, tense and triumphant all describe this writhing West Coast DJ's sets. Accompanying and equally adept at dusky dips, weaves and main floor massacres is New York's SCARLETT ETIENNE. Abstract Rhythms' DJ Rhythm and Sky hold down the stroll under the stars in Eden Sat., June 5.

$10-$15. 21 and up. 9 p.m. eleven50, 1150-B Peachtree Road, 404-874-0428. www.eleven50.com.
