Pregame Happy Hour

Editorial Review

If you're going out to see a DJ on Friday night, we hope you don't need to get up early on Saturday, because you're lucky if the person you want to see makes it on by midnight. That's not the case at Policy's Pregame happy hour on Fridays, which has featured local headliners Stereofaith, Jackie O and Billfold taking over the decks from 5 to 9 at the 14th Street lounge. The theme is music the DJs themselves would like to hear, so this week, when Nacey of Nouveau Riche is up, he'll play songs he picked up on a recent trip to New Orleans, say, some from the Rebirth Brass Band or Bo Dollis, alongside the usual go-go and party music. There's no cover, and the beer is dead cheap: you can get $2 Yuengling, $3 PBR and $4 rail cocktails.
