Dance/birthday party Saturday in Athens

Here's the skinny on this event from Cars Can Be Blue's Nate Mitchell:
All vinyl lovingly and expertly selected by top notch record hounds DJ Mahogany and Kurt Wood, playing the best, the baddest, the rarest, the juiciest and funkiest soul jams from the '60s and early early '70s for your dancing pleasure.

Enhancing the mood will be visual stimulation provided by the Eye Gate Lightshow ('60s-style psychedelic lightshow with oil blobs and 16mm projections) and Whistling School for Boys (LCD video projections edited by Sabrina Cuadra).

Also, I will be serving a hearty Southern-style home-cooked meal when doors open at 9pm (last time I made fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac-n-cheese, rice-n-beans, collard greens, baked sweet potatoes, corn on the cob and a couple other items).

Also, two kegs of beer and maybe a special liquor punch or something (last time, I made a vodka-infused watermelon) will be on hand.

The party will double as a sort of early birthday celebration for me (my real birthday is Nov. 19th), so my birthday wish is for people to dress up as sharp as possible and come out and dance all night long to the best music on earth!

Again, the party is at Ben's Bikes in Athens, doors and dinner are @ 9pm, there's no cover to get in, but donations are definitely encouraged and appreciated.

Kurt Wood has an insanely huge and awesome record collection. It'd almost be worth the drive just to hear select cuts from it.

Here's a shot from a comparable September event taken by Athens-based photographer Mike Lunder.
