With events like a recent release party for Veronica Vasicka’s Minimal Wave Vol. 2 comp and a New Year’s Eve bash featuring Araabmuzik and Laurel Halo, Todd P jump-off 285 Kent is slowly opening its doors to the those who’d rather dance than mosh. Tonight’s megabill will certainly push things further in that direction: Nguzunguzu, key players on M.I.A.’s underrated Vicki Leekx mixtape, headline, but keep your eye on opener MikeQ, the DJ whose house-ballroom tracks like “The Ha Dub Rewerk’d” have kids dropping and vogueing all across New Jersey. With Salva, Rizzla, Rezzie (Weird Magic), and Thomas (SICK).
