The Ottobar has always had fun (free!) DJ nights upstairs, featuring everything from metal to funk to soul to Britpop. But on Friday one of its most popular dance parties, "Two-For-Tuesday," expanded by moving downstairs. DJs Craig Boarman and Matt Walter spun a mix of indie, 80's, new wave, soul, and more on the main stage of the music club.

Cover was $6 (two-for-one admission if you arrived before 10 p.m.) and, perhaps the best part, the drinks were two-for-one all night. So we're talking two mixed drinks for $4—hard to find a better deal than that on a Friday night. The music included usual dance party selections, like Depeche Mode, Junior Senior, Talking Heads, Michael Jackson, and Le Tigre—so nothing too monumentally unique there. But the crowd, though not as massive as the bar's dance parties used to get, was loving every minute of it.

I also appreciated how The Ottobar showed the Maryland game in the back bar. Truthfully not many people besides me seemed to care about the first round of the NCAA tournament, but I thought it was nice that they showed it anyway.

According to the bar's Facebook page, it'll be hosting this sort of dance party one weekend each month. Next up, The Ottobar is bringing its Moustache Super Fun Dance Party downstairs on April 23, where there will be no cover and $2 drinks until 10 p.m. The more cheap, fun dance parties in this city, the better.
