Q: "i've noticed that most pittsburgh dance parties have a mission statement. what's yours?"

Q: "any 70s glam and art rock?"
A: of course.
Q: "well, i wasn't alive then. 80s new wave and college rock?"
Q: "what about 90s britpop?"
A: yes! and allow us to save you some time. we also play contemporary tracks from the 2000's and 2010's too!
Q: "do you guys play rap music?"
A: sometimes, after enough whisky gingers, one of us might play some salt 'n' pepa... but don't count on it.

A: just come, and watch as your social anxieties melt into a sea of cosmic energy. allow the healing dance power of "STRANGEWAYS" to wash over you, while you bask in the glow of handsomely clad strangers as their bodies pulsate rhythmically to a never-ending stream of timeless indie classics and underground pop hits.
