Propa Tingz.

WICKED 2
8 p.m., the Village. $10 adv., $15 d.o.s., $20 after 9 p.m.

Local dance promoters Cybertribe aim to fill the voluminous Village like few, if any, have before. From 9 p.m. until 2 a.m., they've got nearly 20 DJs slated for two areas, in the pit near the stage and in the lobby. The Bay Area's Propa Tingz is probably the biggest name. He's a UK émigré whose official bio claims that he is “widely acknowledged as the pioneer of Glitch Step.” I'm not sure anything in arcane DJ culture is “widely acknowledged,” but Tingz' description, on paper and through speakers, sounds pretty good — a geographical “sound clash” of Bay Area hyphy, Dirty South Crunk, UK Bass and the latest in Glitch, music built around what we think of as the sounds of digital error (clicks, scratches and glitches). A good number of local DJs also fit in the bill, including the rising DJ/producer trio Deviant Soundsystem, Conway party starter Wolf-E-Wolf and Cool Shoes co-founder Shawn Lee.
