Dust off those dancin’ shoes, because the district is chock full of options for getting your groove on this weekend. Tonight is Rock and Roll Hotel’s free Epic Dance Party, with mash-ups of 50 Cent and golden oldies, and DC9‘s Liberation Dance Party ($6). Last time I went to Liberation, it was a great time but the room filled up quickly, so get there early!

I still can’t decide between the Black Cat‘s two options for Saturday night: Mousetrap, full of fun Britpop, or local band Ra Ra Rasputin, which has been described as “a sugar rush of catchy exuberant rock that has no problem keeping their captivated crowd moving.” Decisions, decisions!

Dance Your Way into 2009

What better way to start 2009 than a dance party…or four? Dance the recession blues away starting Friday, January 2 with Rock and Roll Hotel‘s Disco City (free), then boogie into Black Cat on Saturday the 3rd for Homo/Sonic, an alternative co-ed dance party for queer folks and their friends ($10).

The next weekend Black Cat bombards you with BLACK CATatonia, featuring DJ DK kickin’ it old skool with two turntables (and probably a microphone) on Friday, January 9 ($5) and Mousetrap, a fun-filled Britpop night, on Saturday the 10th ($10).
