South Beach Close to Home

Save the gas money and catch top-shelf South Beach beats simultaneously with the uncanny techno groove of renowned DJ Alej Varez. This Friday presents a rare opportunity to bump and grind close to home, to the sounds of this premier South Beach maestro, who has made a name for himself with his enticing blend of underground techno, progressive house, and pop flourishes. Born Alex Alvarez, this Miami native rose through the ranks in Miami's fickle dance scene to earn a spot behind the decks at such South Beach notables as Pearl, Level, and Billboard Live. This genuine dance-floor mastermind performs at Gryphon only once a month, so it's a party not to be missed. Catch an EDM master at work Friday at Gryphon Nightclub, 1 Seminole Way in Hollywood. Tickets cost $20; must be at least 21. Call 954-581-5454, or visit gryphon-club.com.
