This week’s highlights
Rezz, 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 21, at WaMu Theater. This Canadian DJ is slipping on her signature light-up glasses and making a stop in Seattle for her “Beyond The Senses” tour in support of her latest EP of the same name. Born Isabelle Rezazadeh, Rezz, 24, has been DJing since she was 16 years old. In 2018, she won a Juno Award for Electronic Album of the Year for her debut, “Mass Manipulation.” She was nominated for the same award this year for her second album, “Certain Kind of Magic.” Fans of electronic music won’t want to miss the chance to experience a night of dancing and headbanging to this rising DJ.
