Most dancing requires a predictable beat, which is why party DJs rarely play symphonies or audiobooks of Stephen King novels. Trade cliffhangers for club sounds with this GrouponLive deal to see the Sorry for Party Rocking Tour featuring LMFAO with Far East Movement, The Quest Crew, Sidney Samson, and more at Spokane Arena. For $30, you get one ticket for seating in section 201, 202, 218, or 219 on Friday, June 1, at 7 p.m. (up to a $45.25 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6 p.m.
Despite their determinedly of-the-moment sound, Redfoo and Sky Blu are carrying on a long pop lineage: the former is Motown founder Berry Gordy's son, the latter his grandson. As red-hot electropop duo LMFAO, the uncle-nephew pairing electrifies dance floors with manic odes to party life. The 2012 Sorry for Party Rocking tour explodes with fan favorites such as "Party Rock Anthem" and newer hits such as "Sexy and I Know It," which has a bouncy swagger that dominated the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 28 weeks. Meanwhile, the band parades in neon animal prints amid backup dancers, bobbing beneath giant robot heads, tossing inflatables into the crowd, and creating a spectacle Metro Weekly calls "enormously entertaining."
The LA-based foursome Far East Movement straddles the worlds of underground DJ culture and crowd-pleasing electronic dance music with such hits as "Like a G6" and "Jello." After winning the third season of MTV's America's Best Dance Crew, The Quest Crew diversifies the bill's skill set with acrobatic hip-hop moves, gravity-defying leaps, and dangerously intense head bobs. Amid a trio of other energetic opening acts, Dutch DJ Sidney Samson draws attention to his electro-house beats and intense remixes of everyone from Kylie Minogue to Lil Jon.
