THE BASEMENT Launch Party: International Music Mashup

Posted By QWOC+ Boston on January 9th, 2011

Spectra Events presents The BASEMENT
Your favorite un-mainstream international dance party is back for 2011. New location, new music, new vibes

The Basement
Featuring DJ RIZZLA

The BASEMENT is a glitter and Top40-free zone.

This party’s for the freaks, the geeks, rebels, queers, music lovers and so-you-think-you-can-dancers… Leave your egos, hipster jokes, and Justin Bieber requests at the door.

Comfortable clothes (and an extra roll of deodorant) strongly encouraged. We wanna see you dance like you mean it, just bring some protection ;) .


PRE-SHOW featuring a roster of eclectic local musicians and artists each month.

If you’re a musical performer who blends/mixes genres like no other — rap and classical guitar, afrobeat and salsa, jazz and poetry — and is interested in being featured at one of our monthly pre-shows, we’d love to hear from you.
