Obscura's Three-Year Anniversary at Rips: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Three signs of a good Obscura dance party: high pony-tails, pink eyeshadow, and not caring that your eyeliner's smudging because you've been dancing around with a bunch of sweaty people sporting a jacket and sports bra.

Obscura, the monthly dance party, had its third anniversary Saturday at Rips Ales & Cocktails.

Obscura's known for whacky themes and even whackier attendees -- a great excuse to get out and do some people watching and fashionable note taking. The Good's above, the Bad and Ugly are after the jump, and the whole, obscure slideshow is right here.

Two signs of a bad Obscura dance party: attempting to pull off Courtney Love without much more "train wreck" affect, and stealing Elton John's glasses.

One sign of an ugly Obscura dance party: the white bucket hat, which under NO circumstances should surface -- dance parties included. (Bonus points for the very Depeche Mode Nitzer Ebb T-shirt.)
