Tighten Up! dance party moves to Sonar tonight
Pablo Fiasco, the longtime host of a popular monthly soul, ska, funk and reggae dance party near Hollins Market, has moved the event to Sonar (407 E. Saratoga St.).
The party starts at 9 p.m. and costs $5.
I'm being a little vague here because certain members of the city's liquor board read this blog, and I don't want to get anybody in trouble.
But for years, Fiasco threw some pretty crazy parties at a semi-underground venue with the initials L.H. ...
These throwdowns are always on the last Friday of the month, which is tonight. So instead of heading to the aforementioned semi-underground venue, go to Sonar instead. It's in the main stage, which is a pretty big space for a smaller dance party, but whatever.
I'm also a little surprised that Sonar's main stage was free on a Friday night, but whatever. I might swing by tonight to check it out and support Fiasco. He's put a lot of effort into keeping this dance party alive.
"I love my city, and I ain't going to let it die," Fiasco said. "We'll start in one corner, and however big it gets is however big it gets."
