NINA SKY is at the Good Life 8/25.
THURSDAY 08.16 M|O|D @ Descent

The W Hotel's Electric Summer Music Series goes underground with the party crew DJ team of M|O|D. Trap Arnold, Lil Texas, and Rewrote go balls-out on the heavy bass party-music circuit, and this shit will have you calling into work dead on Friday morning. Get crunked on the downtown dime. 100 Stuart St, Boston | 10 pm | 21+ | FREE | 617.310.6742

THURSDAY 08.16 ANDRE OBIN @ Middlesex Lounge

Fresh off a tour of the Netherlands and Germany, Cambridge electronic music producer Andre Obin takes the DJ reins at Make It New, adding a bit of smooth heaviness to the weekly techno party. "Nightowl," off Dutch label Klopfgeist, shows a sprawling, twirling Obin finding his comfort zone. 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge | 9 pm | 21+ | FREE | 617.866.6739


Vamos, everybody. Friday-night powderkeg Pico Picante turns up the heat with Portland renaissance man Dave Quam, a/k/a. MASSACOORAMAAN, dropping his twitchy experimental beat-blend of juke, reggaeton, and global influences heard on his Fade To Mind debut EP Dead Long Time. 28 Kingston St, Boston | 9 pm | 21+ | $5 | 617.451.2622

THURSDAY 08.23 DJ ANDY ROURKEthe Middle East 

Electro heavyweight Throwed teams up with Rescue Nite and the Pill (full disclosure: that's my party) for one of the Boston's largest indie-dance nights, headlined by former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke, who's been known to DJ a bit of everything. All are invited, except Morrissey. 472 Mass Ave, Cambridge | 9 pm | 18+ | $10 adv. | 617.864.3278


Monthly hip-hop stalwart Fresh Produce once again calls upon Queens, New York, to get the party moving as R&B/pop sister-duo Nina Sky team up on the basement dance floor. Nicole Albino holds down the turntables, while Natalie grips the mic after residents Knife, Tommee, and Frank White get it started right. 28 Kingston St, Boston | 9:30 pm | 21+ | $5 | 617.451.2622
