Party Like It’s… You Know

90sfeb08.jpgMiss the fourth installation of YO! Remember the 90’s?? As if! Unless you’re totally clueless when it comes to comebacks, you know the nineties are the dopest thing since, like, the eighties. And if you don’t, you oughta know.
No, we’re not talking overplayed nu-rave, just good old-fashioned dance mixes: hip-hop, pop and rock, plus all the one-hit wonders it’s cool to like now that there’s a decade of ironic distance between you and your adolescent self. Think Hammer Time, Ray of Light remixes, lots of love for Courtney, a Jagged Little Pill overdose or two, and generous helpings of Salt, Pepa, and Spice Girls.
The city’s most wicked-awesome retro dance party has all that and a bag of chips—organizers Paul G. and company are taking song requests on the Facebook event page. (Please don’t try to be all old-school hip and ask for, as Cher would say, “the maudlin music of [your former] university station.” No one wants to shake it to Pavement.) They’ll also be playing seminal 90s movies on the big screen.
So stop being all, “Back in the day…” and get with the old times. Jump around. Be a Lovefool. Get too sexy for your (flannel) shirt.
The party goes down like Lewinsky this Saturday, February 2 at Teranga (159 Augusta Avenue). Doors at 10 p.m. Cover is five dolla. Snap bracelets optional.
