Tonight's Setlist: Saturday: Dance for fun, funk for a cause, 'snot rock'

Posted By on Sat, Aug 9, 2014 at 8:57 AM

I saw a movie once in which dancing was outlawed because it was, essentially, a sin. Inspired lust and stuff. But the killjoy adults were no match for teenage desire, especially once bad boy Ren McCormack came to town. Arcata has a lot of rules, but, thankfully, the powers-that-be will allow you to salsa, cha-cha, merengue and otherwise get your sexy on via coordinated hand, foot and, most importantly, hip movements.

Where can you experience this sensory-heightening fun, you ask? At Mazzotti's, where a new monthly Baile'N Mazzotti's Latin dancing night allows an opportunity to make the most of the joint's rather fabulous wooden dance floor. Five dollars and an ID stating you are at least 18 years old will get you in. The dancing starts at 9 p.m.

Up the same way, another event that includes shaking your groove thing — for a cause other than just getting your juices flowing, you hedonist, you. Instrumental Flight is throwing a benefit for the O'Brien School for the Maasai (in Tanzania, natch!) in what is aptly named Funk Night for the Maasai.

Your donations — $10 minimum to get in — will help Dave Klawitter get the school's new music department off the ground. Live music from the Get Down Crew and DJ Rickshaw with The Klaw and a light show by Marmalade Sky at the Jambalaya. Doors at 9:30 p.m., 21-and-over. Tons more info at instrumentalflight.com.

And then you've got your Pittsburgh "snot rock." In the form of The Lopez. At the Alibi. You know the drill. (The drill: $5, 11 p.m., 21-and-over.)
