Monday Night Mania

Under normal circumstances, Monday night isn't exactly a big evening for DJs and dance events (look no further than scant amount of listings we've got for proof). DJ Steel's weekly Manic Monday session at the Crown Room in Scottsdale, might be a good place to hit up, as the spinster will be programming an eclectic mix of music videos and tracks of the classic rock and electro variety. Just don't ask the dude to boot up any hip-hop or Top 40. "I won't be banging out the hits like 'Rude Boy' or 'Empire State of Mind,'" Steel says. "A few nightlife industry people hang out here and they already hear that music all weekend."
