Queerz In Da Hood

Posted by Emily Sweeney February 12, 2007 02:55 PM



On Saturday night I scoped out "The Neighborhood" with some pals. It’s a new monthly dance night at the Midway Café in JP that Gunner Scott and DJ D'hana started in December.

The February edition of "The Neighborhood" drew a mixed crowd of queer girls, gay boys, straight kids, couples, singles...

Hip-hop was playing when we first got there, and my music snobbery started to kick in after the third or fourth hip-hop track. "Oh no," I thought to myself. "We’re gonna be stuck listening to one genre of music."

...but I was wrong =)

DJ D'hana proceeded to bust out Joy Division, New Order, and even some old skool Lionel Ritchie without skippin’ a beat.

The dancefloor was packed. I was very impressed. Definitely wanna go again.

Spotted in da crowd: Kathleen McGhee of Boston’s Weekly Dig, rock n’ roll photog Kelly Davidson, DJ Punketta, Matthew Connor and Adam Hodges of Provocateur, and Micah Bellieu of the Boston Phoenix.
