2013: A Space Oddity (Sci-Fi Dance Party!)

Put on your dancing shoes and don your best costume ... Spellbound Productions is hosting an amazing sci-fi dance party on the 4th of July, and we can't wait to attend! The headline acts are Voltaire and Ego Likeness, and there will be performances by the DDP Drill Team and go-go dancing from the Deviant Dollz. There will also be 2 rooms of dancing brought to yo by DJ Kangal, DJ Mighty Mike Saga, and the fabulous DJ Spider. There will be a sci-fi costume contest as well! Please note that we are not hosting or running this event, simply attending together. For anyone who feels like doing something other than watching fireworks, this should be a lot of fun.

Empire (formerly Jaxx) is one of Northern Virginia's few nightclubs, and recently underwent an amazing renovation. Their Alchemy Room is a really cool lounge and bar area, and the walls are covered in alchemical symbols and formulae! Parking at Empire is free. Doors open at 7pm, and the kitchen will be serving until 2am. There will be a $20 cover charge. Guests are welcome, but bear in mind that it's 21+ with ID to attend. Please keep your RSVP updated and accurate, so we know how many to expect!

      Does that mean he has to do a double century?

    We had a blast! The dancing was so much fun, and hanging out with you guys was awesome! We should do this again in the future!

    Who knew a high five could turn into the newest dance craze? :-) What a great time! Thanks to everyone who made it so much dang fun to get out on the dance floor and dance like no one's watching! Or dance like everyone's watching--that might be an extrovert thing.

    That was the best! I had so much fun - definitely a nice break from the standard Independence Day fare. Now, if I can just learn to be as awesome a dancer as Loretta and Judy, I'll be all set! ;-D

      Awww, thanks! It's all about attitude! Oh, and 14 years of jazz and ballet training, a year as the alternate pom pon in high school, and being surrounded by a cool group of people who aren't worried about being cool :-)

    Definitely a lot of fun! Good people watching and getting to know some Book Club members better!

    This was a blast, glad to spend time with all of you last night. Wish I didn't have to work the next day or I would have stayed even later. I second that Judy was the dancing queen of the night!

      I don't think I would have danced at all if it weren't for Loretta and Judy.

    I'm at the place where the map says it should be, but I don't see the night club :-\ is the entrance kind of hidden?

    • Jeremy D. H.

      There is. Just look for the small sign called empire.

    • Paul

      On my way too. See you folks there. I guess two huge guys with shaved heads will make it obvious.

  • Steven W.

    Wish I could, but really not feeling well now...

    Never been here before, what's the crowd and area like? Doubt I can get a costume together, but if I wore a t-shirt and slacks, is that fine?

    July 4, 2013

    • Vijay

      Given that there's a costume contest, I doubt they'll be enforcing a strict dress code, so it's up to you. I'd wear whatever you'd be comfortable wearing out to a club or lounge in the city.

      July 4, 2013

    • Rahsaan W

      Don't sweat it Paul. I completely failed at putting a costume together, so I'm just going with Jeans and a tshirt (scifi appropriate, of course).

    Hope you're excited for tomorrow! Just for fun, here's a YouTube video of David Bowie performing "Space Oddity" live: http://youtu.be/pXSGocWifAg

    So how will this one work? Are we all meeting up in some location inside Alchemy?

    Anyone in the Falls Church area want to carpool to this?

    June 18, 2013

    • Vijay

      Realistically, given that it's going to be a club during a party, we'll probably run into everyone throughout the night. And I don't want to tie people down to arriving at a certain time or having to stay in the Alchemy room if they want to dance or mingle. What may help is if people want to post clues as to what they'll be in costume as (if dressing up) or other easy ways to find each other, feel free to use this comments thread for that on the day of the event. :)

    Sorry to miss this but I'll be out of town.

  • Vijay

    Hi, everyone. I don't expect this to affect much, but just an FYI that the event is no longer 18+, it's now 21+ only. Also, just a reminder that there will be a sci-fi costume contest at the event, if you want to prep for it, but costumes are not required. Thanks!
