Imagine yourself dancing, swaying and rocking to sick electronic-indie tunes as they lull you into a whole new dimension… Where are you now? You’re at Dance Yourself Clean, of course!
Dance Yourself Clean is a big event this summer! It’s the perfect melange of the rage in an Ultra-themed night club and the chill vibes of an indie concert. Pretty much, it’s an indie-pop dance party, and you’re invited! The sweet rave craze started in Seattle, Washington and has now expanded to such places as Los Angeles, California and Portland, Oregon. But this summer, Boston, Massachusetts is getting blessed by its presence and is going to host a banger by the organization!
The whole concept behind DYC is to give the music fans a safe haven to lavish in the songs and atmosphere they love without any fear of judgement. Much like Daybreaker, it’s a space dedicated to letting your spirit move freely to the beats and rhythms that get your heart racing. It’s not your typical underground warehouse rave, it’s not a bourgeois-y night club with drinks served to your sit-down table.
The best part about the music is its personality. The music is indie work, so of course we all are aware of its humility and unpretentiousness, but because it’s also electronic, it’s not mundane or underwhelming, and it’s definitely not repetitive like the radio’s Top 40. Members of the organization state that:
patrons of DYC can be seen singing along on the dance floor, slow dancing to the latest Charlie XCX or jumping up and down to their favorite Daft Punk song. Anything goes at Dance Yourself Clean, all we ask is that you leave your expectations and inhibitions at the door, come in take a shot and get on the floor.
So, why not get out there, step out of your comfort zone, and whirl onto the dance floor to leave behind reality and dance yourself to mental clarity and utter bliss?
Albers, a member of DCY, says: “We’re talking a dark room, loads of fog. In fact, we consciously use way too much fog. We love it. Fill a room full of fog, turn on some lasers, play some LCD Soundsystem and forget about everything else. No frills. We’re not trying to impress anybody with gogo dancers or any fancy decor, that’s what Vegas is for. For us, it’s all about the music“.
