If you like your night out to be retro and you want to take a trip down memory lane instead of listening to the next shit, you’re gonna spooge all over the place at Dos Amigos. Mr. Len and Jer2 have themselves a merry old time playing old-school hip-hop hits (totes cool, I miss all that stuff, yo), new wave from the ’80s (though this hasn’t been done yet, really), and more nostalgic pop to make you remember why you hated junior high school so freakin’ much.

On Wednesdays, which are the new Mondays, which were the new Thursdays, which were the new Tuesdays, two floors of good times can be found at Movida. Downstairs, San Francisco import DJ Spun (the man responsible for booking the amazing P.S.1 Warm up series) spins with Adam Goldstone. They play really good house music. Deep and lovely. Trust me. Upstairs, the party Three, featuring Neil Aline, Jay-J, and Matthias Heilbronn, is in full swing. They also play super-swell house music. There’s really no excuse for your boredom, then.

Danny Krivit’s such a dance god that our house-music-maniac photo editor, Staci Schwartz, came back from last month’s bash crowing about how she danced so hard she threw her back out. Yes, the man’s that good. Especially when he delivers old-school house favorites like Jaydee’s “Plastic Dreams.” (It’s one of the only house records that you can try and hum and not look like a raving lunatic. Or maybe not.) If he played that record every week, I’d come just to hear it.
