DDPP Providence Wants YOU To Keep the Party Goin’!!

Hey you rad person who happened upon this blog. DDPP Providence is no longer, but it could be revived if you’re interested!

What is DDPP? Check out http://www.dancedancepartyparty.com for more information. And if you’re interested in bringing your energy and enthusiasm to this chapter – write to: ddppchicago[at]gmail[dot]com


That’s all, folks.

DanceDancePartyParty Providence is cancelled until further notice.  The volunteers in charge of this volunteer-run event unfortunately have other things demanding their time.  But we miss you!

Indefinite Hiatus

As Amy and Sarah make big schedule and life changes, DDPP Prov will stay on break until at least January 2010.

This summer’s hiatus

We’re taking the entire white shoe season off this year, friends, Memorial Day to Labor Day.  We hope to see you dancin’ in the streets, rockin’ at the roller derby, shopping the Farmer’s Markets and Providence Open Market, but we’re steppin’ out of the studio for a couple of months.

Friday, May 28 is the last DDPP of the season.  See you at 5:30!  Hang around after for a little snack if you like.

DJ F’Rella bringin’ it again!

Drat, where are all those playlists again?

Been a little overworked, friends, but here’s the April 30 playlist and I know there’s another from Supah Stah around here somewhere…

Last week’s playlist

As usual, DJ Natasha Bygone overly proud of new music

Resisting the ever present temptation to rely on the music playing in her bedroom in 1990 and/or mid 20th cnetury stripper jazz, Natasha recently downloaded Surfer Blood and Janelle Monae. This added to the Stones, MJ, Fats Waller and the Pogues. When we say variety, we mean VARIETY. Also: a special New Order cool down you haven’t heard in years.

See ya tomorrow.


Wow!  Extra special thanks to the 10 newbies on Friday that made their way through the March Madness attendees and makeshift beer gardens to dance with us.  As a special treat, strippers from the club outside our back window could be seen on the sidewalk grilling hotdogs for the basketball fans.  Ah, Providence!

See you next week–also next weekend: be sure to check out the Manton Avenue project, featuring Sarah’s acting talents and Amy’s directing work.  Plays written by kids, for people.  www.mantonavenueproject.org

DJ F’rella–Back Again!

Another welcome kick to our tired-of-winter behinds.  Meanwhile, your DJ Natasha Bygone has been a music downloading binge and record buying kick; Las Vegas Grind compilations, Janelle Monaé, Surfer Blood, the Smiths, the Cure, and all those versions of Steppin’ Stone.  So you have loads of tasty new tunes (and new to my computer tunes) to look forward to this spring.  Woo hoo!
