The vibe of this Southeast Portland venue is something like a nightclub from a ’70s sci-fi movie with tastefully futuristic art scattered around the two-level space and a love for modern dance music and R&B that’s always one step ahead of the blogosphere. Holocene’s long-running parties like Verified, Dance Yourself Clean, and Snap! always showcase the deep bench of DJ talent in the city. Their talent bookers also keep a sharp eye for up-and-coming local and touring musicians, pulling from every genre under the sun—and likely a few that they don’t have a name for yet. ROBERT HAM
