    Frankie Knuckles, Inventor of House Music, Played the Travis on Friday: Review

    Have you ever walked into the Travis? It's one giant flash-bang, a sensory blitz of polished stone, metal pillars, and wall-to-wall mirrored glass, which when paired with the club's retina-shattering strobes, imparts a sense of infinite dimension.

    This is, so far, the burning question of this Coachella, being asked everywhere from the campsites to the press tent.

    DC9er Mixtape, Vol. 33: Blake Ward

    ​Blake Ward got his start spinning in Oklahoma while attending Oklahoma University.
