Have a retro day in Boston
Do the worm
Make some noise if you're ready to relive the awkward school dances of yore, sans sweaty palms and the gossipy, teary trips to the bathroom. DJs Damien Paul, Mikey Lee, and Deathstar spin throwback tunes from the '70s, '80s, and '90s — listen for Madonna, old school hip-hop, and selections from the "Jock Jams" discs — at the monthly Middle School Dance party in the Good Life's streamer-strewn basement. Expect special guests and a slow jam around midnight. A little "All My Life" by K-Ci & JoJo, anyone?
"People just regress when they hear certain songs from back in the day," DJ Damien Paul says, with a laugh.
