Hate Jamz 

10 p.m. Saturday, July 14. 21+ only, no cover. Touch Supper Club, 2710 Lorain Ave., Ohio City, 216-631-5200.

Don't let the title turn you off: The Summer of Hate Weekend is the grooviest happening to hit Cleveland since the Summer of Love. The weekend kicks off with a Friday-the-13th hardcore extravaganza featuring American Werewolves (pictured) at Peabody's. And if a sweaty evening in the pit isn't your idea of a good time, fear not: The following night, Hate Jamz, is a dance night that rocks. DJs D Buu, B-Boy Ben, and Mike from the Good Life parties reunite, and they're teaming up with Eric Zunkley, Brooklyn, and Beverly Thrill to fill two floors with unstoppable jams. "Hip-hop and dance, mixes and original mashups," says Pants Pantsley, who's helping organize the shindig. "We are taking it to the next level. Cleveland and surrounding cities should show up only if they like solid dudes, babes, and good times. Way cooler than most anything else -- statistical information reinforces this." We're not sure what he means, but it sounds like a good time.
