LinA In LA Club/Party Picks: Muse Til Midnight, Sander Kleinenberg, The Lot
For those who like to party, Summer's soiree schedule still shines pretty bright even as the seasonal shift begins. This week offers plenty of opportunities to get down 'ti' the leaves turn brown. It's in fact a very colorful week in L.A., club-wise, whether you want to think pink, get red hot, or get back in black. (Tim Burton would approve.) With destinations including everything from museums to parking lots to patios, the beginning of September looks like a week to remember.
Check out the Tim Burton exhibit and hear Dublab DJs at LACMA; see Sat.
Fri., Sept. 9
Another installment of Red Devil Disco heats up the Dragonfly this month. DJ Xian Vox spins electro, EBM and alternative disco remixes, while Apollo Star spews dirty glam and rock.

"Art queens, fetish freaks, pin up bitches, gender benders, and fashion fuckery" encouraged. 6510 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood. www.misskittysparlour.com or www.LADEAD.com
