Don’t you miss Hall & Oates? They are, after all, the best-selling musical duo ever. Their hits in the early ’80s can still get you on your feet. Let’s be honest; we all want to have a dancing flash mob to “You Make My Dreams” like Joseph Gordon-Levitt in (500) Days of Summer. But wait . . . you can! That’s right, peeps. Tonight, you’ll dance to nothing but the top 40 jams during H&O’s prime. Grab your finest throwback attire and strive to rep a finer ‘stache than John Oates.
Who better to be spinning than DJ Jake Rudh? He’s one of Minnesota’s finest (find him Thursday nights on 89.3 The Current) and a winner of several “Best DJ” awards. He’s serious about the theme, tweeting that there won’t be “a new wave, alternative, or indie track to be found.” Sounds good to us. Doors open at 10 p.m. 21+. Free. —HS
