Weekend Dance Party: Harvard Bass Hits Smart Bar

By Jake Guidry in Arts & Entertainment on May 14, 2010 7:00PM

2010_05_13_harvardbass.jpg Smart Bar is killing it per usual on the dance scene as tonight they host techno-house producer/DJ Harvard Bass, this week's pick for Weekend Dance Party. Harvard Bass hails from California and brings a wealth of influences to the table, everything from 80s to hip-hop to deep trance. All this has translated into a bevy of high-quality remixes and original tracks that pay homage to the old and push forward the new. Tonight Smart Bar will be a hotbed of glowsticks, sweaty bodies, spilled drinks, illicit substances and, of course, heart-pounding dance music.

Harvard Bass will be supported with a special birthday set from local DJ Nate Manic, so get there early and dance often. Life's just better that way.

Harvard Bass tonight, Smart Bar, 21+, $10 before midnight, $12 after.
