The West Coast always seems to lag behind the times, especially when it comes to dance clubs that pump out the latest and greatest feet-moving, body-gyrating beats. But the scene should get more hip when DJ JahMek debuts his dub steppa3000 tuneage at the Jungle Drum & Bass Kickoff Party. The 21-and-over weekly at Hollywood Alley will feature DJs popping off UK-style drum n bass beats as well as jungle grooves.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
