Apolitical DC / Dancing / DJs / → All Tags
DC is widely ridiculed for being a town full of squares, and to be honest, from about 8am to 6pm things can get pretty dorky here. But that just means there's more steam to blow off at the end of the day. In the second outing of Jaunted's Apolitical DC series, we're looking at Washington's surprisingly diverse dance party scene. With an enthusiastic young population and little of the dollars-and-drama it takes to go clubbing somewhere like NY or LA, these are our favorite District spots to dance the dorkiness off.
Black Cat: This live music standby reels in plenty of big-name indie bands, but it's perhaps best loved for Mousetrap, the District's biggest Britpop dance party. On the second Saturday of every month (that's this weekend), DJ Mark takes over the mainstage and spins anything and everything UK—from Morrissey to Pulp to the Streets to Kaiser Chiefs.
Here's the thing about most New Year's Eve theme parties: They are lame. Always seems like a lot of fun on paper, but the sight of adults forced to dress up (and looking miserable doing it) is no way to celebrate anything. But 2008 is the Year of the Pirate, so we're making an exception for Bootie SF's New Year's Eve pirate-themed dance party.
Bootie SF is a bi-monthly shindig, born in 2003, featuring DJs who mash up the hits for a crowded dance floor. Snag a $25 advance ticket and don your suggested, but not required, pirate attire for three-plus hours of crazed dancing and letting go of 2008. Who will be the first to bravely sync up "Womanizer" with the Hall & Oates tune "Maneater"? If anyone can make it work, it's these fun-loving kids.
