Club Reports: Dresden, Three Clubs, Academy LA (Hollywood)

Visiting Los Angeles for the weekend and beginning my first night out at Dresden. The venue was one of the locations featured in the film "Swingers".
Straight out of a 1960's Holiday Inn lounge, Marty & Elayne were performing absolutely horrible older classic songs!
Does anyone remember Mark & Lorna doing the exact same thing at the Red Fox Lounge inside Winter Park's now gone Best Western? The Blog was there too. Link.
So kitschy, so amazing!
Another venue featured in "Swingers" is The Three Clubs.
Spotted outside: My "Mans Weekend" friends Don, Art & Justin.
Sadly we could not get in as a there was a filming going on inside last night. This is a pretty common occurrence in Hollywood.
But now on to the main show at Academy Nightclub!
Arriving around 11PM, there was already a crowd in the club.
DJ Rico Rox (USA) in the booth when we arrived.
His awesome set completely House & Electrohouse!
Up-and-coming DJ Savi (USA) took over next.
His EDM set also mixed-in a lot of Dubstep and Heavy Bass.
They have an amazing light ceiling at Academy.
Not aware of any clubs in Orlando that have something like this. In fact, the only club I've been to anywhere that had this was Dragonfly in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Link.
All of a sudden this girl came on stage with a microphone.
And she would perform the vocals on one of Savi's hit songs! Did not get her name.
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls!

 Savi played earlier this month at Coachella and has upcoming gigs at Summit in Austin, Omnia in San Diego and E11even in Miami. We look forward to seeing him again!
Art getting down!
Partying in VIP!
And now the reason we were here!  DJ Thomas Gold (D).
He would go on to play a great EDM set!
First time seeing him play since Electric Splash in Miami last year. Link.
The dance floor was packed!
And a good time was had by all!
