Wes WallaceDj/ Remixer / Billboard Reporter
Billboard Magazine reporter from 1990 to Present.
Resident Dj at Numbers Nightclub in Houston, TX since 1986

Numbers has seen it all. One of Houston’s oldest nightclubs, the venerable Lower West­heimer establishment begins its fourth decade with retrospective videos, exciting giveaways and various DJs — Numbers chieftain Wes Wallace and special guests spinning the club’s signature blend of synth-pop, electro, glam, goth, dance, retro and whatever else they haul out of the crates — to tickle your fancy — or something else, if you’re not careful (it is Numbers, after all). How the club has survived 30 years of crime, yuppie uprisings and the obligatory sex, drugs and rock and roll is no surprise: It’s been a haven for not only artists, from The Cure to Grandmaster Flash to Death Cab for Cutie, but also to generations of Houstonians who just want to dress up (or down) and have fun. When you’re old and gray, listening to that classic Blur CD (Blur played the club in 1997, btw), underage teens in heavy makeup will still be trying to sneak in with fake IDs. Numbers is a rite of passage for countless Houston youths …

Numbers is best-known, of course, for “Classic Numbers,” DJ Wes Wallace’s Friday-night institution of all things ’80s and alternative. Open since the late ’70s, as seemingly eternal (or is that undead?) as Dracula himself, Numbers also hosts local necromancers Underworld’s monthly bash, and live music from synth-pop to rap several times a month. (Depeche Mode and Erasure co-founder Vince Clarke was a recent visitor.) –  HP Best of Houston

———-

There aren’t many places inside the Houston city limits where you can see a guy dressed up like a goth George Washington nursing a dirt cheap Long Island Iced Tea and shadow-dancing, but such is the reality at “Classic Numbers” every Friday at well, Numbers off Westheimer. The hallowed dance floor seems to be catnip for the drunken and lusty minions among us who just have to cut a metaphorical rug each time we hear The Normal’s stunner “Warm Leatherette”. We’re pretty sure if we heard that track during daylight hours, our heads would explode. DJ Wes Wallace can play the crowd like a fiddle, dishing out crucial Joy Division and The Cure cuts, while keeping an eye on modern fare …
