But in San Francisco, the party lull didn't slow DJ Lorin Ashton, who was working to put together a collaborative√ā¬†project, Bassnectar. Today, the DJ represents some of the country's most cutting-edge electronic music, with an inclusive approach to diverse genres--break beats, drum and bass, hip-hop, and dub, to name just a few. Saturday promises a high-energy show for loyal fans (SF Weekly wrote that Ashton "probably has the largest cult following of any DJ in San Francisco"), as well as those with a simple penchant for tireless dancing. Sat, Feb. 28, 8 p.m. Aggie Theatre, 204 S. College Ave., Fort Collins 970-482-8300, $20
