Stuck on Earth tops itself with the lineup for I Have a Dream 4. I have the feeling that if most of the over-21 clubgoing population didn’t have a stick up their ass about attending raves, they’d be drooling all over the talent at this show. Three Chicagoans—Green Velvet, Derrick Carter, and Felix Da Housecat—top the bill, as well as Eurotrance jock Dave Ralph and deep house/tech house tricksters from H-Foundation, Hipp-E, and Halo. But the strangest part of the bill resides in the drum’n’bass room. Joining darkside masters Ed Rush and Optical and Storm, two regulars on the circuit, is Frankie Bones. Yes, you read that correctly. Frankie Bones, NY’s techno godfather, will be playing his first-ever drum’n’bass set. Genius! For more info, hit www.stuckonearth.com. Saturday @ 6, Hammerstein Ballroom, 311 W 34th, 279-7740. Those grumpy old folks who refuse to go to the Hammerstein can camp out at Plant Bar, as one of the headliners will be making a special appearance there around 2. (Can’t say who.) Saturday @ 11, Plant Bar, 217 E 3rd, 375-9066.
Shelter, one of the last club nights dedicated to keeping the Paradise Garage tradition alive, returns in a big, big way. Shelter the weekly is not just resurrecting itself, but the crew behind the party has bought Club Speeed and renamed it Club Shelter. For the first few weeks, the club is still going to be partially under construction, so they will be reviving the old “Construction” parties made famous by the Garage. And those of you who spend your nights dreaming about the lost Twilo sound system can finally get some sleep: The Shelter peeps purchased the one saving grace of the defunct club. Shelter resident Timmy Regisford spins. Saturday @ 11, 20 W 39th, 718-446-8980, www.clubshelter.com.
