This radical event features Lingerie Karaoke all night, a no pants fashion show beyond your wildest imagination, and sexy, Latin-inspired beats provided by DJs Adnan and Guada. While guests are welcome to express their alliance in dresses, skirts or shorts, real deal revelers will enjoy a complimentary pants check at the door. Let go of your structure, your pockets, your belts and join fellow proponents of pantslessness for a night you will never forget.

Event: Infatuation
Venue: Vessel
DJs: White Girl Lust, Mykill, Alona & special guest
Music: indie dance
Cover: $tba
White Girl Lust features "low art for the high brow listener." Clay plays real instruments, but prefers banging pads on the Akai. Eric puts together noises so you don't have to, and exploits his former pseudo-fame as a drum 'n bass producer way too effing much--like the dude that played high school football and won't shut up about it. Bottom line: pulling from classic house, disco, funk, and contemporary dance, these guys are giving pleasure and pressure this Wednesday night. (FR)
