L.A. Music Events: January 18 – January 24

Flyer for Klub Nocturno at Catch One on Saturday, January 20, 2024

This Saturday, I’ll be DJing at Klub Nocturno’s massive, multi-room bash at Catch One. The RSVP list has already filled up and if you’re on it, be sure to arrive early because entry is first-come-first-serve. See Klub Nocturno’s post on Instagram for more details. I’ll be playing in the New Wave vs. Dark Wave room and can’t wait to see those of you who are going on the dance floor. 

As for the rest of the week, here’s what’s happening. I’m keeping this brief on account of not having much time to write this week.
