Dear Swing City Patrons!
Week at Swing City: "Solomon Douglas Quartet"
SATURDAY at Huron Ave
We're very excited to have Solomon Douglas on stage
tonight at Swing City. He's an extremely popular musician
and dancer from the Boston area, and is flying in specially
for us from Seattle where he's based now. This will
be his first appearance at Swing City that I'm aware
of, so please join us in welcoming him tonight!
On Our Schedule and Reorganization
As we noted last week, it's been clear for a while
that Boston's scene is not big enough to supporting
two swing dances on Fridays, especially within as close
proximity. So we're readujusting Swing City's schedule
to better suit the situation. In general, Swing City
will be open at Huron Ave on the 1st Saturday, 3rd Friday,
and 5th Saturday on months when there is one, in addition
to periodic special events.
We've also bid farewell to the Somerville City Club,which
has been a cool venue but unfortunately with just enough
unsolvable problems to keep enough people away. Finding
a good venue in Boston is really the crux of the problem
that Swing City has suffered from since the original
Huron Ave VFW was demolished. We'll be working on improving
the vibe at Huron Ave further going forward.
Thanks everyone for your support as our journey continues...!
lessons at Swing City
New to Swing Dancing or already an expert? No worries,
we've got something for everyone!
A Special Guest Instructor will be teaching the intermediate
lesson this week. Karen Leeds returns to teach the beginner
class. Both are at 7:45. Classes have been HUGE lately,
so be sure to come for those. Beginner and intermediate
levels are concurrent, so you can find a class that
suits you and still bring your friends who might be
at a different level. Plus, the classes are a GREAT
way to meet people if you're new to the scene.
Swing City, the best weekly Swingin' venues in town!
- Tons of free parking
- Ice Cold Air Conditioning
- Full Bar, ~$4 cocktails (at City Club venue only)
- Great Floors (one patron was giddy with excitement
- Easy "T" Access (at City Club venue only)
8:00pm: Beginner and Intermediate
Swing Dance Lessons, no partner necessary.
9:00pm: Band goes on (DJ in the breaks)
until ~12:00am or when people leave
The great thing about the new intermediate lessons
program is that the bulk of our regular dancers will
be able to take a non-beginner class with our
rotation of Boston's top dance instructors, while still
being able to bring beginner friends for the intro lesson.
The intro class will be single step East Coast, while
the intermediate class will be taught in triple-step
and sometimes will include some Lindy and more. The
intermediate class will be different each week. Furthermore,
if either lesson is too hard or simple for you, one
can just switch to the other one as needed.
So please join us for lessons, a night of rich live
music, dancing, affordable cocktails when we're at the
City Club (yes, $4!), lots of cool fun people of all
ages, and some great exercise. Bottom line, a great
night out for only $15 ($10 with college ID), the cheapest
cocktails in town, and a super vibe! Read, "Boston's
official Cheap Date."
