THURSDAY 05.06 | THROWED
FEAT. ALL LEATHER @ Middle
This very special installment of Central Square's
biggest, baddest 18+ dance frenzy features Dim Mak terrors All Leather - with ex-members of the Locust and
Some Girls - as well as local
beat force Herra Terra. All that plus the regular damages from DJs E-Marce and
Mr. Matt equals one Saturday that's gonna feel like a Sunday.

THURSDAY 05.06 | SIMON
"BASSLINE" SMITH @ Phoenix Landing
We're saying a little prayer for the Phoenix Landing's PA, as
d&b pioneer Simon "Bassline" Smith has a history of, well, explodifying
them. This is going to be one sick night of cochlear trauma and heavy bangers.
Lenore opens; Dorothy Cookies supplies visuals.

FRIDAY 05.07 | LA BOUM
TURNS ONE @ Milky
One big, robust, reinvented year later, the party once
known as Gross Anatomy has blossomed into JP's finest monthly throwdown. Join
DJs Stella and guest Shailah for a serious birthday celebration to the sounds
of synth-pop, one-hit wonders, dance jams, and pop classics. Girl, you haven't
aged a bit.

FRIDAY 05.07 | THUNDERDOME
XVIII: GONZO SUMMER @ Villa Victoria
Center for the Arts
For its 18th installment, Thunderdome is going through a
rebellious phase and sticking a rock band - the now ubiquitous Worcester dream-pop force that is Dom - in between regular mind blowers
Mistaker, Baltimoroder, and David Day. Robot Kid and Matt Boch handle visuals;
Mike Swells, Volvox, and Coralcola rock an afterparty at Rise.
85 West Newton St,
Boston | 10 pm | 21+ | $15 |
SUNDAY 05.09 | RESCUE
NITE @ Model
Join Rescue for the newly newb'd resale boutique's
monthly dance party at the Model, one full-to-bursting with new wave, now wave,
post-punk, indie hits, and, yes, a whole lotta Morrissey. So even if you don't
find a belted coat or your mother's bridal veil, you can oscillate wildly and
get happy in the haze of a drunken hour while Moz does the rest.
