Shake it Like a Bowl of Soup

With Slack Lounge long defunct, and Blowtorch permanently banned, local hipsters have had a couple of years to sell their Vespas and stockpile their pent-up danceable aggression. This Thursday (and every third Thursday of the month), perpetual adolescents are invited to strap on their giant belts, polish up their dance shoes and pony up to the Poor House (110 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale) for a much-needed spastic release at the new Rock ´N’ Soul night, Jones. The now monthly dance party mashes live music and funk/soul DJs together for an evening of sweaty shimmy/shake mayhem. This Thursday’s featured bands are Hashbrown (fresh off the Big Apple’s short order grill) and Humbert (SXSW’s favorite guerilla-style self-promoters). So come on, stick it to the man and party on a Thursday, and then spend Friday hung over in your cubicle – you’ll still be tapping your feet knowing that you bucked the system. The free party gets jumping around 9:30 p.m. Call 954-522-5145.
Third Thursday of every month, 9 p.m., 2006
