Personal space is most definitely at a premium inside the recently remodeled CenPho gay bar Incognito, 2424 East Thomas Road. So much so that when the throngs show up for the biweekly dance night Social on Friday, July 17, for an evening of alcoholic escape with a chaser of house cuts, you'd better be prepared to jockey for position on the dance floor. It's to be expected, considering that resident DJs Jacob Delph, Maji, Brian Pfirrman, dk.strickler, Matthew Hinman, Steve Edwards, and Rani "g" have been busting their collective bums to get the word out on the event, which takes place on the first and third Fridays of every month. It's envisioned as an inclusive shindig that's cross-promoted with the similarly themed UNITY night (which also takes place at the Incog), where anyone can come to bust a move to an intoxicating array of deep, funky, and progressive house until 4 o'clock in the mornin'. Drink specials, including $2 "Unity" shots, will be available all evening. The music (and the love) begins at 9 p.m. with a $5 cover after 10:30. Call 602-955-9805 or visit www.socialphx.com.
