This will be SF's first full Techno Contra dance experience! DJ improper will be here from Maryland, spinning electro-remixes of indie pop, house beat and, well, anything he can think of. We'll have the music pumped up so it rattles your bones, and the black lights out, so wear something that glows in the dark.

Janine Smith, also from Maryland, will be calling for us. She's out on tour with Mr improper (AKA Jeremiah Seligman), so they'll have honed their communication down to a science for the gig.

And of course, we'll have glow sticks for the dance and punch at the break!

It's party time.
