Club Reports: Vixen Bar, Backroom, The Fifth, Independent Bar

Saturday night in the city, checking out the local EDM scene!  First stop Vixen Bar.
NLP in the house; DJ J-Dub spinning the Breaks!
The narrow but deep club was packed.
People dancing near the front.
Always familiar faces in Vixen.
And there is EDM music every night!
Moving over to Backroom, located literally in a back room of Native Social Bar.
With legendary DJ Leo Montoya in the booth spinning House music!
The whole club is a dance floor and people were dancing wherever they happened to be standing.
Backroom isn't large but it was pretty jammed in every direction.
Spotted:  Speaking of legendary, DJ's Chris Fortier and John Debo were in the house!  Fortier joins DJ's Kimball Collins (QBar-Bangkok) and Dave Cannalte (Mannequins) for the final-ever AAHZ Reunion this coming July 3rd at The Beacham.  Advance tickets here.
Ironically, while Backroom was jammed for EDM, the front room in Native where mostly Top 40 was being played was largely empty!
Had not planned to visit The Fifth last night.
But when I glanced in and saw this DJ in the booth, I instinctively knew that wasn't DJ Leony up there again!
DJ Orobor spinning Top 40/House during my visit!
At this late hour there weren't that many patrons dancing in the club. I'm really loving The Fifth.  Don't forget this week is the 3rd Thursday of the month which means your lunch is half-price if you dance to one full song.  We'll announce in a few days what Decade this month's music will come from.
Last stop when possible is I-Bar!
DJ Indie John in the booth.  But noticeably absent at the rear was lighting tech Ernie.
But that's cause he was downstairs at the bar, controlling the club's lighting from his cell phone!
The dance floor was still crowded, but not packed.
The Saturday night music format is 80's New Wave.
Spotted: The always Gangnam-stylish CJ with friend Trini.

And a good time was had by all!

that female DJ in black looked HIGH? tired? or very unhappy!?

She has a tight ass thought ;)

Btw..did you notice that she was using Traktor? Most Djs in Orlando don't use that software. I found that interesting..

Not high, not tired, not unhappy. My photo happened to catch her at the end of an eye blink.

I did not notice her using Traktor. That kind of equipment was the least on my mind!

Hope to revise the article to add her DJ name in the coming days. I thought I had met all of Central Florida's female DJ's by now but I apparently had not.

Bob was mesmerized by the tight black pants...

No, I never look at things like that. I only care about the music.
