One valid criticism of the dance music scene is the lack of women in roles other than dancers, models and eye candy. While Australian native Alison Wonderland might not be the only and definitely not the first female DJ, she’s been making the biggest waves recently. After selling out warehouses across Australia and making her U.S. debut with a spot at Coachella last year, she dropped a deluxe edition of her first album, Run, which featured cameos from producers Djemba Djemba and Slumberjack, as well as guest vocals from head Flaming Lip Wayne Coyne. She shows a similar diversity in her DJ sets, incorporating everything from the Cure to Cypress Hill to Dirty Projectors over trap beats and bass drops. We can only hope her undeniable talent inspires even more women to get behind the decks. 

10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20 | Venue 578, 578 N. Orange Ave. | 407-872-0066 | venue578.com | $15-$30
