Live music unites people from all walks of life, unlike silence, which only unites librarians and people who crack safes. Bond over shared sound waves with today's GrouponLive deal: for $25, you get two general-admission tickets to see Laidback Luke at Tequila Nightclub on Thursday, September 22, at 8:30 p.m. (a $50 value, including GST and PST). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Named by DJ Mag as the No. 17 DJ in the world in 2010, Dutch tune jockey and former graffiti artist Laidback Luke dazzles eardrums with high-energy house beats. His on-the-fly-mixing prowess enchants feet into motion, dragging bodies out onto dance floors despite the objections of torsos and handcuff-attached cops. Concertgoers can shear rugs on Tequila Nightclub's extensive dance floor or recharge atop comfy couches and chairs. Colourful ceiling lights enliven the space with chromatic verve, and exposed girders evoke industrial aesthetics and the belly of an animatronic whale. Though not included in this Groupon, a full bar and snack-producing kitchen help refill tummies left empty from reckless boogying.
