Dance through the decades

Tonight you can shake your stuff at the Time Machine, a new monthly dance party at the Lexington Avenue Brewery where each hour brings a new decade of music.

Here’s how the organizers describe the dance, which will take place the first Friday of each month:

“Time Machine is a dance party that changes decade by hour. The event mixes popular music from each period with thematic visual projection and live photography that’s been described by party architect Marty Delafongio as ‘paparazzi prom party meets red carpet costume ball meets Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.’”

The cover is $5, and the fun starts at 9 p.m., with an hour of 1960s tunes. The 10 o’clock hour features ‘70s music, 11 to midnight features ‘80s numbers, and so on until 2 a.m.

On the Time Machine Facebook page, the organizers add: “Costumes welcome, dancing encouraged, mayhem guaranteed.”
