Old-school reggae and no-pants digitalism

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
no pants No pants. No problem.

After a long day at work, there’s nothing that says you’ve been released from the office, with its annoying co-workers and shitty copy machines, like removing your pants. If only you could bring that feeling with you to a bar without getting tackled by burly doormen.

Oh, what’s this? The Ruby Room (1271 University Ave. in Hillcrest) will throw its first-ever No Pants Party on Friday, Sept. 7? We must’ve put in some good-karma overtime. Make sure to wear your best undies for this one, as your pants will be checked at the door. While it’s not mandatory, letting your legs out will free you from a cover charge. DJs will spin the jams, which I’m guessing will include “The Thong Song” and other panty-related party starters, so get ready to shake what your mama gave you. And I don’t mean your khakis. There will be a Pants Off Dance Off, so bring your A game.

After liberating your scrawny legs from their cotton-wool vice, you’ll probably feel invincible—almost high off the freedom. You know what also does that? Atmospheric electronic dance music made by Germans. That’s why you should head over to Voyeur on Saturday, Sept. 8, for a DJ set by Hamburg electro duo Digitalism. Their tunes are the kind that make you see glitter stars as you jump up and down like a kid hopped up on sugar in a bouncy house. Hell, some of the kids here will probably be hopped up on some form of candy. Beware of the guy who thinks he’s a unicorn. He’s a licker.

Round out the week with some cool, mellow grooves at Whistle Stop Bar’s Brixton Beat, a night of '60s reggae, mod and soul on Wednesday, Sept. 12. Don’t go there expecting crappy reggae; this is for the rude boys and girls and the (non-racist) skinheads to show off their (non-slutty) skank moves.
