Chad America's Birthday Party

DJ night, DJ night - soul/funk

Editorial Review

We always look forward to Black Cat bartender Chad America’s birthday party. Every year, he books a few bands, throws open the doors and invites everyone to hang out at the club for the night. This year, though, the party is moving to the nearby Dodge City bar, and instead of bands, Chad has corralled three of D.C.’s best old-school soul and funk DJs: Soul Call Paul of Big Bad City, Baby Alcatraz and Mad Squirrel of the Black Cat’s girl-group-heavy Party Lights. As always, it’s free, and Dodge City has one big advantage over the Black Cat: a two-level back deck, perfect for when the dance floor gets too sweaty.
