2010_06_04_happydaze.jpg As far as the dance music scene goes, we find ourselves venturing to the same locations week after week. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but every now and then a change of scenery can do a mind-and-body good. Cue Happy Daze at Green Dolphin, this week's pick for Weekend Dance Party.

Green Dolphin is a venue we rarely get to check out, but with tonight's Happy Daze event, there's no reason not to. The bill touts The Juan Maclean (DJ set) and DJ Falcon, two sets that should bring a good blend of indie, electro, pop, house and more. What makes Happy Daze so enticing, however, isn't just a couple of pretty good deejays. It's the fact that The Juan Maclean and DJ Falcon are accompanied by a bevy of acts including Gemini Club, SR-71, Chicago Work Group, Team Bayside High, Dani Deahl, and Santiago and Bushido. Green Dolphin will be invaded with good music in just about every crevice, nook, and cranny. And to top it all off, there's free BBQ. It doesn't get much more Summer than that.

Happy Daze, tonight, Green Dolphin, 2200 N Ashland Ave, $15, all ages.
