Shakedown 11.18 - 11.24: Dance like a turkey, before the turkey dances like you


DANSER @ Milky Way
Remember watching Adam Ant on MTV back in the ’80s and thinking you could dance better than that choad? Danser finally gives you the chance to prove it, as the JP new-wave party tonight hosts a dance competition with a cash prize to the winner. Don’t stand, just deliver.

284 Amory St, Jamaica Plain | 9 pm | 18+ | $2 | 617.524.6060 or

FRIDAY 11.19
DATSIK @ Middle East
Last year, Canadian dubstep producer Datsik famously “got my swagga back,” and now he hits Cambridge to let us know all about it in person. Terravita, Hot Pink Delorean’s drum ’n’ bass side project, get things started in a party we’re dubbing the Wobble Before the Gobble.

480 Mass Ave, Cambridge | 9 pm | 18+ | $14.50 | 617.864.3278 or

Street-style blog Click/Clash has documented the fashion-forward since 2007 (see pic above), and featured between New Yorkers and Londoners are... Bostonians?!? Show off our city’s style at Masculin Feminin, with Click/Clash’s Susie G hosting and beats spun by residents John Barera and Volvox as films by French New Waver Jean-Luc Godard shine above.

1625 Tremont St, Boston | 9 pm | 21+ | Free | 617.566.5958 or

From Prince Paul to Mayer Hawthorne, it’s been a banner year for special guests at Fresh Produce. Boston’s best hip-hop party caps off 2k10 with Brooklyn’s DJ Eleven of NYC party the Rub, who’ll have the place all steamed out after the first hook of his monster party jam “Every Freakin.”

28 Kingston St, Boston | 10 pm | 21+ | Free | 617.451.2622 or

COOL RANCH @ Middlesex Lounge
Remember how your older bro told you Thanksgiving Eve was about going home to the ’burbs to catch up with high-school buddies? Yeah, fuck that. Mentally prepare for the awkwardness of ThanksDrinking with those damn Bodega Sluts as they give us their last live show of the year before it’s studio time.
