Chicago Weekend Roundup: February 21st-23rd, 2014

For some blood-pumping EDM and a rave-like atmosphere, Mayhem at The MID is the perfect place to kickstart your weekend. Grandtheft, DJ Zebo, Kite, and Caked Up are joining together at this 21+ event, presented by React and The MID, a venue somewhere between a live music hall and an upscale nightclub. The VIP cover charge is $10, and ticket buyers must arrive to club by 11:30 pm for guaranteed admission.

Anjunabeats duo Norin & Rad are two rising stars breaking into DJ sets across the country. Featuring trance-inspired beats and progressive EDM, the team are known for anthems like "DeVas," "Zion," and "Pistol Whip," as well as remixing the Halo 4 soundtrack and "The Way You Are" by Peking Duk. The event is hosted at Palladium nightclub at the Castle, and early bird tickets are $10 (so buy now!).
