Monday House Party

w/ DJ Sid the Kid (10pm-2am, FREE, 21+)

Retrolution, the longest running dance night in the history of Tucson featuring all your favorite hits of the 80’s, is finally being dragged, kicking in screaming, into the 90’s. We hope to ease the way with $0.80 wells – 9pm-10pm, $0.90 wells – 10pm-11pm, $2 wells (until 1am), $3 Beer and a Shot “Special” (PBR can/well shot), and a little Jazzy Jeff & Nirvana. Don’t Worry, DJ Sid the Kid will throw in the occasional New Order or Prince hit to help smooth the transition. LET’S PARTY LIKE IT’S 1999.
