All-girl lineups can either be a patronizing smack in the face or a celebration of female talent. “The ‘Famous Friends’ DJ Tour,” featuring Miss Kittin, Electric Indigo, and Dinky, fits more in the latter category. Local gal Dinky is a lovely Chilean import who makes equally lovely textured techno for labels like Traum and Carpark, but when she spins, it’s ferocious. Techno DJ Electric Indigo hails from Austria but spent the mid ’90s in the percolating Berlin music scene, appearing on DJ Hell’s label, International Gigolo Records. And Miss Kittin, the purring presence on the Felix Da Housecat record who delivers her vocals deadpan, headlines the whole affair. As a DJ, one can’t help but wonder, does she scratch? Meow. Catch them Saturday (with She Ra, Ulysses, Sara Walker, and Element 82) @ 10, Lunatarium, 10 Jay, DUMBO, Bklyn, 718-813-8404; Sunday @ 10, Tribeca Grand, 2 Avenue of the Americas, 519-6600.
Rich Bourque and Juan C have started a new night in W-burg called Feel Up! So far their lineups are pretty ace—last week featured Todd Sines and this week’s got new-gal-about-town Magda on the decks. She’s a minimal-beat fetishist’s dream come true (no wonder she’s Richie Hawtin’s right-hand lady). Thursday @ 10, Boogaloo Bar, 168 Marcy Ave, Williamsburg, Bklyn, 718-599-8900.
Daddy G, of Massive Attack fame, comes completely outta nowhere for a special Dj’ing tour. Paying homage to his days as part of the infamous Wild Bunch sound system in Bristol that helped plant the seeds for what became known as the trip-hop sound, Daddy G is going back to his roots, you could say. Wednesday @ 9, Shine, 285 W Bway, 941-0900.
