Fridays @ The District

Jared Alan used to be the hipster king of Saturday nights. Back during the heyday of the weekly Cheap Thrills wingdings (which have since become a monthly), Mr. FauxShow himself packed 'em by the hundreds for a night of dancing and debauchery. Alan's flipped the script and switched over to Friday nights at the District Lounge inside the Sheraton Downtown, 340 North Third Street, where his draw is equally as fierce. Each and every week, Alan and a variety of special guests spin up some R&B, chillwave, lounge, indie pop, disco, and a variety of leftfield hits, as well as plenty of electro jams. The music starts at 9 p.m. and there's no cover. Call 602-817-5400.
