|Elder Street Artists Lofts' Rummage Sale! Sunday, April 18th!!
||[14 Apr 2010|11:12pm]
We're doing it again! Come out to the Elder Street Artists Lofts (formerly the Jeff Davis Hospital) and buy our stuff! We'll have many things for sale. We'll have electronics, including TVs, stereo equipment, cameras, playstation 2 as well as clothes, records, cds, movies, furniture, cat furniture and so much more! And since we're artists, you know we'll have our art available for purchase as well! We are a community of photographers, fashion designers, painters, sculptors and jewelry makers. (I'm sure I've forgotten a few other specialties!) Of particular note, one artist will have clay beads and pre-Colombian clay!
1101 Elder St.
Houston, TX 77007
We are near Houston Ave and Washington Ave. (You know, the place you have to go for all of your traffic violations!)
April 18th (Sunday)
9am - 12pm
From Houston Ave, turn on Dart St. (You can only turn one way on dart, so it doesn't matter which way you're coming from) It's right after/before the railroad tunnel/underpass.
Go ALLLLLL the way down until you think we are just leading you into the woods and turn right on Elder. (You will have passed the police impound lot and HFD logistics building and come upon the old probation building.)
Once you are on Elder St. keep going until you see the first driveway on the right, turn in here and park in this lot (no guest parking in the front parking lot!)
We will have signs to direct you once you approach the building. We have yet to determine if we will keep the front door open, or use a backdoor closest to the parking lot. (You should check out the front of our building anyhow, it has an AMAZING view of downtown and you can read about the history of the building on our historical marker!)
|It's the final DANSEPARC!!!
||[09 Oct 2009|10:31am]
Alright, this is it! This is the FINAL danseparc. We started this thing in 2002 with Jen (Nuromantik now known as DJ Skully), Allison (Fashmagslag/Faux Fancy) and myself, Shoe. Since then we've had DJs leave and new ones come, such as Jaime (from Fashion Kills and Substance), Stacey (Mr. Pink Eyes) and Michael. Jaime now lives in Denver, Stacey is in Chicago and Allison is in NYC. They are ALL flying down here to play a set at the final danseparc! So for the first time ever, we will have every danseparc DJ playing a set in one night!
Many have asked why we are ending it. To that we say, check out this interview: http://www.29-95.com/music/story/danseparc-ends-its-seven-year-party (Thank you Ramon!)
We are sad to say goodbye but it is time. We want to thank you all for making it a fun night, we owe it all to you. So we hope you can make it out one last time, even if you don't go out anymore. Let's make it a night to remember!
We will have a lot of giveaways including mix cds, t-shirts and a little zine with the history of danseparc.
When: Saturday October 10th, 2009 9:30pm - 2am (maybe longer if you force us!)
Where: #s - 300 Westheimer
Who: Allison (Faux Fancy), Jen (Skully), Michael, Stacey (Mr. Pink Eyes), Shoe and Jaime
Why: We want to say goodbye!
If you have any pictures, please add them to the danseparc group on flickr! http://www.flickr.com/groups/danseparc/ (join the group and use the organizer to do a whole bunch at once!)
Thank you all again! We <3 you! See this Saturday!

ANDY ROURKE of THE SMITHS
Andy Rourke is a legend in his own right. When Johnny Marr and Morrissey formed The Smiths, Rourke joined the band after their second gig, and remained with the band almost throughout its existence. Marr claims that Rourke's contribution to The Queen Is Dead LP was "something no other bass player could match."
In the last several years, Rourke has traveled the globe as a DJ at some of the worlds hottest clubs, parties, concerts and music festivals, fashion shows, and private events. Energetic, fun, and extremely danceable, Rourke's DJ sets combine a healthy portion of Smiths classics. Britpop, indie-electro, new wave and dance rock. A musical journey from one of the pioneers of the UK indie rock scene.

|ask the mayor to lift the curfew!
||[25 Sep 2008|03:33pm]
look, montrose from what i saw last night pretty much is back to normal with power. venues and nightclubs that actually obey the curfew are losing a lot of money. people that work there are losing a lot of money.
we need to ask the mayor to lift it this weekend or at least change it to 2am on weekends.
so write or call the mayor:

This month's installment of danseparc — a mix of new wave, punk and post-punk, electro-pop, indie rock, and more — themed “November Spawned a Monster,” is a tribute to the teen angst icon, the “is-he-or-isn't-he?” Morrissey. Got a pompadour and lantern jaw? Dress accordingly for the look-alike contest and show off your best lyrical moaning. Hosted by DJ's Michael, Shoe (openly gay), and Stacey (also openly gay). $3 before 11 pm, $5 after 11 pm. 9:30 pm at #s Nightclub, 300 Westheimer. More information: www.myspace.com/danseparc."
