Getting Up Guide: Get on your dancing shoes
A quick survey of Thursday night's what-and-where:
New York DJs Spun and Brennan Green spread the gospel of deep house and disco alongside a deep lineup of locals. From 5 p.m. onward.
Soca in the City
Ever since Zanzibar closed last year, we've been missing announcements for soca and Caribbean dance parties in D.C. DJ Superslice, who helmed many memorable events on the Southwest waterfront, is one of the hosts of Soca in the City, which debuts tonight in the lounge above Indulj on U Street.
Laughing Man has achieved what most bands only hope to with a debut album - landing on an instantly distinctive sound. "The Lovings ('63-'69)" is a brief introduction to the local trio, with just seven songs clocking in at 23 minutes, but that's plenty of time to get properly acquainted. It's also perfect for a spot on a bill with fellow locals Greenland and Black Telephone at Iota. The music starts at 9 p.m.
