Second Rate Swing Exchange DJ Night

Category: dances

“You get what you get and you don’t get upset.”

Have you been concerned that dances in Boston have been a little too polished? Impressive? GOOD? Fear not. If you’re sick of rock solid planning and world-class teachers, we offer you a second rate DJ night as part of The Second Rate Swing Exchange! You can be totally unimpressed by our lack of planning. But do dance. Chances are you’ll have a good time anyways.

Your DJs for the night –

Brian Pletcher’s iPod: Brian has been collecting songs that sound like ‘Lavender Coffin’ since 2000. Brian’s iPod has previously been heard playing in the infamous “bomb box” at Boston Lindy Bomb Squad dance events held around the greater Boston area, and also last year at 2nd Rate! When asked about his music collection, Brian notes that nothing has been added to his iPod in the last five years, “But once you’ve achieved perfection, why keep going?” Brian’s iPod will be put on shuffle to ensure you are kept on your toes!

Emily Kasman’s Swing Dance Spotify playlist: Due to some feedback about Emily’s Pandora station last year (too many thumbs downs in a row…), Emily is going to debut her Swing Dance Spotify playlist! Accumulated over the last year or so, these songs will be played on shuffle for your dancing pleasure!

Plus…it’s DJ Roulette!! Who will DJ? What will the songs be? Who knows? It’s the Second Rate Swing Exchange! Show up Friday night and put your name in the DJ Roulette lottery bowl. Over the course of the night, we’ll choose 5 lucky winners who will play 4 songs of their choice (as long as they’re danceable… we do have standards here.)
