Why you should go: Speaking of family affairs, this shared anniversary party is a celebration of thriving underground/warehouse promotions crews breakandenter and Box of Kittens, and all that they have contributed to this city’s techno and tech house community. Both crews have staunchly stuck to a format of presenting local, national and international artists in unique venues — i.e. rarely in licensed dance clubs — with full, proper sound and creative visuals. Through their events, they’ve helped build a new late-night network and a solid foundation for highlighting the local. The programming here reflects this, with artists playing tag-team sets on a huge soundsystem nicely contained within a soundproof venue. Hurrah!
