To our frozen friends up north, it's the snow and ugly Christmas sweater parties. But to us here in the 305, it's all the kickass music.

Just check out the five best concerts going down this week, from Kaskade, Diplo, and all the PLUR followers at Life in Color to the Juan Maclean and Nancy Whang at Bardot.
