DJ Fobia in the booth when I arrived, playing House music.

Concert Report: DJ D-Unity (100 Club)

Located in an alley behind BackBooth, 100 Club might be as "underground" as you're going to get in Orlando.
Arrived around 11:30PM to find DJ Rita Valenti (USA) on the decks!
Great sound system had the room booming but only a handful on the dance floor while others gathered around the nearby bar.
Rita, a DJ from Miami, was mixing up Deep House, Tech House & Techno.
Taking over at 1AM, famed DJ D-Unity (CDN).
Techno music all night long!
While it never got as crowded, those on the dance floor were bouncing to his both vocal and non-vocal selections!
The Toronto-based DJ arrived in Orlando following shows in Canada, Belgium and Dubai!
Lively crowd but it's been difficult getting Orlandoans to come out for Techno.
Spotted on the dance floor: DJ Rita Valenti with Andrea
For those here, a good time was had by all!

Concert Report: Tritonal (Gilt Nightclub)

Gilt Nightclub on a rare Thursday night out of the house!
Here for the return of DJ duo Tritonal (USA) and their "Painting With Dreams" tour.
And taking over just after 12:30AM this morning, there they were! Chad & Dave = Tritonal!
Club was packed!
And with the Afrojack concert at HOB cancelled, a lot of people came here instead!
Delivering my favorite Tritonal hit, "Now or Never"!
When I saw Tritonal play last year at Venue 578, Dave was missing because his wife had just had a baby.
The peeps want EDM!
Another mega-hit, "Anchor".
Tritonians really getting into the music!
Spotted outside: Pokey & Gumby
Spotted pre-show in the Green Room with Tritonal: CJ & Ashley
Spotted on the dance floor: Marshmello!
Album title song "Painting With Dreams".
Packed to the rafters!
Standing room only!
A good time was had by all!
