Here it is Kids, your official notification about the Desk Set’s next and best dance party and benefit for Books Through Bars:
The return of Dance Dance Library Revolution
Your chance to GIVE a paperback dictionary or thesaurus, GET a complimentary drink courtesy of Enid’s, DANCE your tail off, and WIN amazing prizes in the Four-Eyes Raffle.
The party is free, and it’s a community-based labor of love in memory of our friend Carlos Alvarez, who passed away last summer. A passionate believer in prisoners’ rights and access to information, Carlos had hoped to DJ the next DDLR. In his stead, DJs Mr. Jonathan Toubin from New York Night Train, Fine Wine from WFMU, Megan Awesome, Jimmy T, and Jason Andrews are spinning all night long, and donating their fees to the Books Through Bars cause in Carlos’s name.
