Solid Saturdays

The times are a-changing over at Homme, 138 West Camelback Road. Gone are such old and busted dance nights as StraightNoChaser's "one" and Club Rumorz, making way for new hotness like Solid Saturdays. Promising plenty of "Muzik4FunkyOPENminds," the weekly event sees Scottsdale mainstay DJ Kevin Brown painting Homme's main room with his selections of "nasty-dirty-sexy-tribal-electro-underground-house," while Groovetribe's Jas rocks the Leftside Lounge with a mix of funk, rock, jazz, country, electronica, and old school. Acoustic artist Brendon Cottrell will also be in the house to strum out humorous ballads in the vein of Richard Cheese and Tenacious D. The solid gets slung starting at 8 p.m. and there's no cover.
