I was introduced to Baby Anne's music as an opening DJ at one of her early Savannah, Georgia, shows. I didn't know the first thing about running the decks, but I did fit the dELiA*s catalog cut-out look of a raver girl, complete with Björk buns and UFO cargo pants. I quickly got schooled when she commanded the floor by opening her set with "She Said." Baby Anne, a fixture of the Southern dance scene in the late '90s, was a different kind of performer, DJ and producer. At a time when Britney Spears was a subversive pop icon, Baby Anne was a real counter-culture superstar. Her music, heavily drawn from Miami bass, spanned classifications from drum and bass to dubstep, but has always been breakbeat at its core. After more than two decades performing in clubs and at festivals, Baby Anne will complete her farewell tour this weekend at the Social. Whether you want to relive the golden days of club music or just want a chance to party Hackers-style, attendance is mandatory.

9 p.m. Friday, June 24 | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | | $10-$20
