District 36 One-Year Anniversary: Mauro Picotto + Chris Staropoli

My, how time flies—District 36 (and its stunning Gary Stewart Audio sound system) celebrates a birthday tonight with Mauro Picotto, the veteran Italian DJ-producer behind the massive Meganite parties with a techno-trance sound that's tough and steely. NYC house-music lifer Chris Staropoli, best known for his productions as That Kid Chris, plays as well, with Michelangelo supplying the opening set.
