Hankering for some Bastille Day fun? Our correspondant intrépide Jeff Miranda has an idea:
Sure we might have our differences, but Francophiles and Americans have more in common than you might think – for one thing, our shared love of independence. Today marks Bastille Day, the start of the French Revolution, and tonight’s “Revival” is celebrating through the universal language: dancing.
Billed for people who “hate Boston nightlife” according to its Facebook profile, this monthly dance party lives up its promise.
I checked it out in June and was glad to discover a place that shared an appreciation for the music I usually sing to myself at home – from old school Madonna (“Like a Prayer”) to Boyz II Men (“I’ll Make Love to You”) to Top 40 hip-hop and electronica, I wasn’t disappointed.
If you're tired of bumping and grinding to beatless house music, "Revival" might be for you. Tonight’s party kicks off at 9:30 p.m. at the Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge.
