This is a past event.

Various: Ryan Organ, MonkeyTek, Jon AD, Ian Obe, Folding 

When: Sat., June 4, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5
After nearly five years of rumbling dance floors, Various is taking a break. The monthly event started at a time when dubstep was emerging as an exciting, new genre and resident DJs Ryan Organ, Monkeytek, and Jon AD are largely responsible for introducing the sound to Portland. Even as dubstep popularized at a rapid speed and other nights focusing on the bass-driven music popped up around town, Various easily stood out as the most legitimate option. The residents have consistently curated the finest bass tracks, while filtering out all of the horrible sounds that invaded the genre, and hauled in a literal truckload of subwoofers each month so the music could be experienced in proper fashion. There's not a whole lot of fanfare tonight, and I'd like to hope that means this break really is just a brief hiatus and a new chapter of Various is coming soon. Either way, it's the end of an era and a celebration is in order. AVA HEGEDUS
