Saturday To-Do: DJs from Mars

Late. Discovery. $10-$15.

Word on the street is that this right here will be one of the bigger electronic dance music shows of the year. DJs from Mars aren't actually from Mars; the two hail from Turin, Italy, and they've quickly become popular on the strength of their mashups.

But unlike certain other notable mashup makers, they don't follow the mode of splicing together disparate and highly familiar tracks into a pop Frankenstein ("Dude, it's Dolly Parton and Peter Frampton mixed together! And it totally works, bro!"). Rather, these guys mash up currently popular EDM tracks to keep things bumping along nicely all night.
