Dancing in the City

Looking for something fun to do this Saturday? Head over to the Subway Soul Club, where DJ Phast Phreddie (the Boogaloo Omnibus) will be spinning cool obscure soul records (yes, vinyl—45s!!!—no CDs!!!) from the 60s for your dancing pleasure.

Here's a description:
SUBWAY SOUL CLUB takes place on the third Saturday of the month at Club Rififi, 332 East 11th Street, NYC (between 1st and 2nd Avenues), first record is spun promptly at 10:00 PM and the last at 4:00 AM. In between a whole lotta dancin' is goin' on. There is no cover charge!!!!

Phast Phreddie is a Man among men, a Record Collector among record collectors. All the vinyl without the attitude. Founder of the classic fanzine Back Door Man. Once in the early 80s, I went with Bonnie over to his Hollywood house as a music zine reporter and spent the interview listing to one incredible 45 after another pulled from boxes around the room. He's a poet of the turntable!! Now he's fortunately on the East Coast and has since become head archivist at ARChive of Contemporary Music.

"Don't miss it" is the understatement of century.
