Me 'n' Peg's Pump Up The Jamz Party

The Party: "Pump Up The Jamz" 90's Dance Party
Location:  Blackout Bar (in Greenpoint)
Total Party Count: 53

As I become an avid partier, I sometimes feel like too much of a party go-er and not enough of a party do-er. Well Saturday night was my chance to give back to the partying community! My bff peggy (from the pains of being pure at heart) and I DJed an all-90s dance party, "Pump Up The Jamz" at Blackout Bar in Greenpoint.

The party was a total rager! Actually there was an hour between 11-12 where it was the opposite of a rager and we were worried that our jock jams were making everyone leave but it filled up quickly and the night was a smashing success. I'm kind of obsessed with digging up the hits from the 90s, maybe in a creepy way, where I want to pretend I'm wearing fluffy dresses with fruit prints to fancy bar-mitzvahs (actually i think i only had one of those dresses and i wore it every time). Plus how can you possibly deny the genius of Snap, Technotronic, Black Box, Ace of Base, Boys II Men, Bizarre Inc. etc?? What the hell happened in the 2000's? How did we go so wrong?? When Primitive Radio Gods and  Gin Blossoms were replaced by Creed and Eve 6,  that's when I switched over to Pavement and Belle & Sebastian.



you gotta kick it before we lick it!
