Beat Happening: Kill Paris, Pathos Pathos and more

Dance it out this week in Orlando



Pathos, Pathos

The rush of Pathos, Pathos comes in bursts that rise out of the polished pop slow builds edified by ranging singer Matt Walsh. Sometimes it feels like it calls for an indie-rock waltz, but mostly just for letting loose while the band leads the charge.

8 p.m. Thursday, May 28, at Will's Pub, $5

Late Night Swim: Testing the Waters

This DJ night first started treading water over by UCF and now is moving on to bigger ponds in the Milk District, where the dance party's beefier brother Body//Talk has made a huge splash in the past. Get down to vibes that fling wildly from Toro y Moi to Earth, Wind and Fire.

9 p.m. Thursday, May 28, at Spacebar, $5

Kill Paris

Whatever funky music Colorado EDM artist Kill Paris plays this week – whether it's one of his indulgently fun remixes like "Ghostbusters" or new material off his just-dropped and much-hyped Galaxies Between Us – pulses will be pounding to keep up with his futuristic feels.

10 p.m. Thursday, May 28, at the Social, $15-$20


If you're more black heart than black lights, the Falcon's recurring Friday DJ night, Uberbahn, takes those angsty inclinations and turns them dance-y, driving you to the dark side with goth, post-punk, chillwave and industrial.

9 p.m. Friday, May 29, at the Falcon, free


Gilt lays out a nice trap for beat-seekers by importing California's equal parts chilling and crazy-chill Nghtmre to make sure no one leaves the dancefloor without appropriate party scars. Whether he's swirling his own dark fantasies or mixing up and imaginatively mutating someone else's, you'll have a hard time shaking it out of your system, but we encourage you to try – all night long.

9:30 p.m. Saturday, May 30, at Gilt Nightclub, $10-$25
