Throwed’s E-Marce teams up with man-about-town Texas Mike for this cleverly named Top 40/electro/party-jams night. The launch also features an ’80s theme, complete with a live Journey cover band — excuse us, tribute band. Whatever, we’re there for the $5 Cape Codders as if we were Steff in Pretty in Pink. Pop’a collah.

Underbar goes top shelf as Society to Party presents NSFW (don’t party with your laptops, kids). New York veteran hip-hop DJ and radio juggernaut Stretch Armstrong leads the charge with a host of 617 heavyweights, including The Bladerunners and Frank White.
275 Tremont St, Boston | 10 pm | 21+ | $10 with college ID until 11:30 pm | 617.292.0080 or underbarsuperlounge.com
HOT PINK DELOREAN
Before Hot Pink Delorean (pictured in the photo above) head to Florida to shoot club scenes for a new music video for their Overthrow EP, Boston’s high-energy electro-house trio hit members-only Rise (enter as a member’s guest or go to the website). It’s an all-night rager warm-up a for their UK tour in October, so be sure to bring it legendary.

@ Flat Top Johnny’s
Although this relaxed Sunday night get-together at Dead Pool isn’t so much a dance party as it is a chance to shoot some billiards while Heroes DJ Chris Ewen mixes goth and electro, chances are no one’s going to stop you from busting an undead move. Just don’t use the pool cue as a makeshift stripper pole.

@ Middlesex Lounge
An even more egregious omission than failing to film a pivotal scene at the 99 Restaurant was Ben Affleck’s choice not to include Wasted Talent’s timeless Masshole hip-hop anthem “Khed” in The Town. So raise a middle finger to Hollywood when Wasted Talent joins DJ Frank White as guests at this Bodega Girls bash.

The goth/industrial scene still dearly misses ManRay, but reminders of the old Central Square club keep flaring up, from An Tua Nua (Ceremony) to Middlesex (Vigil). ZuZu keeps the pale beat alive as well, as Stainless’s VJ ZiD and DJ Punketta offer up a piercing audio-visual barrage of old-school industrial and neo-goth fabulousness.

@ Savant Project
If you blinked and missed dubstep — or just slept hard when Caspa hit the Middle East over the summer — then we have bad news. On Wednesday new party Substance D is breaking out the “post-dubstep,” making us all long for the simple days when getting our swagger back was enough to get by. Future garage and grime are also on the menu of DJ Ectocooler (aka John Bittrich) DJDZ and Brenden Benoit Hadcock.
