2000s R&B and Hip Hop Dance Party

What do Aaliya’s “Try Again,” 50 Cent’s “In Da Club,” and Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” have in common? They all reached number one as R&B and hip hop favorites during the 2000s — a not-too-distant decade we’re suddenly nostalgic for.

If 2015 is already getting you down, you can party along with the past when DJ Slick 76 and DJ Melo take to the tables, playing tracks from Jay Z, Kanye West, and even, yes, Mariah Carey.

Shake it like a Polaroid picture during the 2000s R&B and Hip Hop Dance Party on Friday, January 2, at Crescent Ballroom, 308 North Second Avenue. Doors open at 9 p.m., show starts shortly thereafter. Entry for the 21-and-over dance party is $3 in advance or $5 at the door. Check out or call 602-716-2222 for more information.

Fri., Jan. 2, 9 p.m., 2015
