With the Mel Cheren film The Godfather of Disco playing Frameline this weekend/next week, and summer hanging in there by a cocktail straw, tonight’s an excellent time work up a proper dance-floor skin-glistening. Local electro-R&B bunchSugar & Gold celebrates the release of its new CD Crème at 12 Galaxies with genre-shifting opening DJ C.L.A.W.S. Crème packs smooth backing-vocal coos, breezy sunshine melodies, booty-moving guitar rhythms, and infectious club beats into anthems innocent enough for the roller rink — but with a playful wink to late evening escapades. Perfect for your Boogie Nights and your mimosa mornings, Crème, ahem, rises to the top of our weekend picks. —Jennifer Maerz
