Raising the Bar

You love music, you enjoy a drink while listening to music, but you aren’t all into acting like a hipster foolio in public while marinating on music.

Well, Shane Kennedy, a local deejay and never one to bite his tongue, has a cure for the hipster-foolio part during his weekly INTOXICA! at Bikini Lounge. About the night, Kennedy says, “It’s an alternative to the über-trendy ’80s dance night and a remedy for all of the douchebaggery.”

Our translation of the Kennedy-speak: INTOXICA! will appeal to those who like listening to records at home; to folks who like finger-popping, swinging tunes, ranging from ’50s juke-joint blues and girl group to honky-tonk and ’60s rhythm and blues; and to people who think that exposure to swine flu is better than subjecting themselves to the entire techno genre and/or any song by Dave Matthews Band.

The event takes place at 10 p.m. every Thursday and Friday (except First Friday) at Bikini.

Thursdays, Fridays, 10 p.m., 2009
