Valentine’s Weekend Suggestion: Homo/Sonic, Where the Alt. Gays Get Their Alt. Groove On
If you’re looking to get your same-sex loving ass on the dance floor, but you want more to dance to than just Madonna remixes, The New Gay may be able to help. The site's infamous Homo/Sonic dance party covers more than just the latest house hits and chart-toppers; the all-ages, queer-centric DJ night covers tail-shaking tracks from The Rapture to The Blow, with an emphasis on non-straight artists. Sure, Lady Gaga might occasionally show up on the playlist, but she’s far more bearable sandwiched between Peaches and Magnetic Fields. The beats start dropping at the Black Cat Saturday night. 9:30 p.m. $10.
