This weekend marks the third edition of Low End Theory Festival, LA’s go-to event for underground hip-hop. Presented by Goldenvoice and in association with XLR8R, Low End Theory will take over the Shrine Auditorium this Saturday for an afternoon and evening of lectures, production workshops, and performances from LET veterans and newcomers alike. Highlights of the bill include icons such as Raekwon & Ghostface, Invisibl Skratch Piklz, Prefuse 73, and Daedelus, as well as Low End Theory residents like The Gaslamp Killer, Daddy Kev, D-Styles, and more.

On Friday night, prominent pansexual party promoter A Club Called Rhonda returns to its usual spot at Los Globos in Silver Lake for a night of gender-bending debauchery. This time Rhonda has recruited the house music experts and Strictly Rhythm favorites Mood II Swing for a headlining set, while Bok Bok of the UK and LA-based Zernell will play opening slots.

On Saturday, Barem and Alexis Cabrera land in London to showcase their groovy minimal-house label Fun Records. The showcase will start off with an afternoon boat party in association with Unleash, and besides DJ sets from Cabrera and Barem, the excursion will feature a back-to-back performance from John Dimas and Djebali. Afterwards, the showcase will move to its after party location at Village Underground, where attendees will be treated to a rare live set from Berghain / Panorama Bar regular Thomas Melchior.

And on Sunday, Flash Club and Prescription present the first edition of The Sidewalk Ends, Washington D.C.’s newest festival for underground house and techno. The one-day, two-stage event, which is set to take place in an outdoor area near Union Market complete with Funktion-One sound, will feature a range of cutting-edge underground music from the likes of Camea, Wolf + Lamb, catz n’ dogz, DJ Three, and many more. You can purchase tickets to the event through XLR8R by going here.
