On the List - Rory Phillips, Miguel Migs, Arthur Baker, Sander Kleinenberg and Fool's Gold


We feel it. It's going to to be one of those weekends -- you know, the ones where you see the sunrise every night. Why? Because there is so much to do this weekend that we had a hard time condensing it to this list.

Tonight, all the way from London comes Rory Phillips. Phillips, who has spun at the legendary Trash alongside Erol Alkan, will get the hipsters dancing at The Vagabond with his blend of electro-house and indie staples.

We think Set easily takes the prize as the city's most gorgeous venue, so when put deep house DJ Miguel Migs in the mix you've got the makings of an unforgettable night. The San Francisco DJ's music has a soulful appeal that is sure to get the crowds moving.

In what is probably the oddest booking of the year, Saturday night, White Room's Poplife party hosts music producer legend Arthur Baker. The man, who is well into his 50s, has produced songs for Cyndi Lauper, New Order, Bruce Springsteen, Afrika Bambaataa and Planet Patrol. Can't say we are sure exactly what Baker will be spinning, but it's going to be interesting nonetheless. Also attending the party will be representatives of the campaigns for Barack Obama, Joe Garcia, Annette Taddeo and Raul Martinez, along with congressman Robert Wexler. Odd night indeed.

In a doubleheader booking, Sander Kleinenberg starts out the night spinning at Cameo and then gets the party started at 4 a.m. when he takes over the decks at Space -- and all this is just for nightlife impresario Louis Puig's birthday. The Dutch DJ is known for his progressive house sets and this will be his last Miami set for the year.

Also on Saturday, you can drop your pants at PS14. Otto Von Schirach takes over the 14th Street bar along with Notorious Nastie, Thug Jesus and more in what is sure to be a bass-heavy set.

In case you haven't heard, Scion A/V is celebrating the release of its Fool's Gold Remixed compilation by having a party at White Room Tuesday night. Nick Catchdubs, Treasure Fingers, Jokers Of The Scene and Nacho Lovers will be spinning all night long. Best part? The party is free! All you have to do is RSVP at www.scion.com/avrelease.
