2008_03_therapture.JPGWe recently told you that palindrome proficient club evilOlive is the Monday night hot spot. Hipsters flock there (maybe because it’s so ironic to get loaded on a Monday?) to knock back PBRs and get down to the indie-rock dance party during the club’s weekly Rehab program.

But tonight is extra special, considering a couple underground overlords will be making an appearance. Vito and Druzzie, members of New York-based dance-punk group The Rapture will be DJing alongside Midwestern spinners DJ Jordan Z. and Florida Mike. Get ready for a non-stop punk pop slam dance. For a taste of what The Rapture is about, check out some of their MP3s.

Tonight’s normally free event is $10, although half price before 11:00 p.m. (so $5) but then $15 after 2:00 a.m. Got it?
