Dear Bossa gods, As we begin our journey into the darkness of the weekend, we ask that you protect us and guide us through the strobe and fog. Although you are absent, you are eternally present in our hearts and our souls. Salvation is of the dance. May your blessing of salvation be ever with us. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. In the name of Bossa we pray, Amen. Uh, just kidding. Well, kind of. Ok, yeah, so we miss Bossa Nova Civic Club, which, in case you were sleeping or something, is closed temporarily for renovations. Still no definite word on when they’ll be re-opening, but in the meantime the holy Bossa spirits will be with us while our hearts pound through another sleepless weekend of shenanigans. Also, we admit, Bossa’s absence does open us up to a little more variety than usual: This weekend, we’re going on a field trip all the way to the city. Oh, and on Saturday we’ll start things off extra early with some daytime dance shenanigans, 8 hours of it to be exact. Onward, into the darkness. (more…)

It’s your weekly roundup of parties and shenanigans to keep the dance going all weekend long! This week, there are a ton of awesome lady DJs in the mix which always makes me so stoked to see, but an especially nice little beacon of hope this week after Resident Advisor released a Top 20 Live Acts of 2014 with not a single woman on the list. Bullshit, but whatever. Brooklyn knows what’s up with the ladies. Also, we know right now, with the holidays looming, you might be a little tight on cash, and we’re definitely right there with ya, BUT it just so happens to be a week with a lot of free (the majority, actually) and cheap stuff going on, so that’s certainly no excuse to like, sleep or whatever you were thinking about doing instead.
