Platform Wednesdays

To hell with Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, and the other aging Spice Girls and their so-called reunion. We've found a better outlet to get overloaded with girl power — Platform Wednesdays, a hump-day hootenanny and "queer dance party" that goes down at E-Lounge, 4343 North Seventh Avenue. Every week, smokin' hot DJ Sophia Gunn gets the rumps shaking and wipes out the midweek blues with a mix of electro, New Wave, indie, and other genres that echo throughout the Phoenix lesbian nightspot. The babe-alicious beat-slinger Gunn is also joined behind the record decks by a rotating lineup of P-town's female turntablism talent, such as Sneaky School, DJ Mara, Emerjency, and others. Drink specials include $4 Jäger Bombers and 2-for-1 well and domestics until midnight. The party starts at 9 p.m. and there's no cover. Visit www.myspace.com/platformqueerparty.
