The Love Dogs are at Swing City this Friday!
Come join us for our final night at Springstep with one of Boston's most popular swing bands!
(Note: no "Annex" dance this week)

Updated directions including bus routes »

Venue Update: Everyone's getting really excited about our move next week, and a lot has been happening. Last week I got a flood of responses about moving to Watertown, thanks all! Unfortunately the venue reconsidered and decided weddings were more profitable. So... unfortunately that's out for now. We'll keep looking for options there down the road.

However, the Sullivan Square location is looking better and better, and I'm getting a good feeling about it! It'll be a place we can comfortably call "home" for a while until other options like Huron Ave or the Greek Church get sorted out.

The new place is the Somerville City Club, at 20 Innerbelt Road, Somerville (map). It's adjacent to the Holiday Inn near Sullivan Square, directly off I-93 and 3 blocks from the Orange Line. There are also a ton of buses that come through, ample parking, an "Annex", and of course... a FULL BAR. For those that drove to the Greek Church from I-93, you probably went right past it on Washington St. In fact it's only a little over a mile away and about three miles down the highway from Springstep.

Full directions and details will be sent out next week, and of course we've got none other than the Fried Bananas there for our re-re-reopening! We're also probably going to have our Bal/Fast Lindy Annex Night as well for the opening. Stay tuned!

"It was one of the best swing dances I have attended in well over a year (and I dance several times a week)."

"Nice people all w/good intentions. From the person at door to anyone I would ask questions; all have positive,upbeat(no pun intended) attitudes. And this love of Swing Dancing is obvious by all assistance kindly offered and rendered. Five Stars."
