If you want to see funny people in funny clothes (or, y'know, "cool" clothes, whatever) but you're too busy snubbing BuddyTown before they snub you
, check out the Left Can France party this Friday night at Ombi Bar/Le Peep.
Normally called Left Can Dance
, the event is a weekly dance party hosted by two WRVU DJs who like to play great music and watch people try to dance to it. I say "try" because everyone knows that most skinny white kids look awkward on the dance floor, no matter how many bangle bracelets they're wearing or how retro their sneakers are. But the fun thing about Left Can Dance is that they try. If you'd been there a couple weekends ago, you would have seen Tracy Moore
and I do that dance where one of you pretends to be a fish and the other one is a fishing pole and then you try to catch the fish and reel ֠well, the point is that we're dumb. But we had fun. If you want to have fun too, you should check it out. And if you like staring blatantly at strangers like I do, Left Can Dance will definitely give you some great people-watching opportunities.
In honor of Bastille Day, this week's party is French-themed, featuring French pop music spun from 10-11:30 pm, then the "non-region-specific indie/electro/rock/dance you've come to expect at LCD" kicks in after that. It'll give your weekend that certain je ne sai quoi. That certain....croissant. That certain...greasy moustache and slight body odor.
But...I'm pretty sure you have to have a white belt to get in.
