Tonight at the Firehouse -- DJ Carl's Last Set in 2006?
Author: Meeshi :: Posted: Thu Aug 24, 2006 4:16 am GMT
Carl Flores DJs tonight at the Firehouse!

Well, it turns out tonight maybe your last chance to see our beloved babe-magnet, Carl Flores, at the Firehouse for some time. He's out of town for the next two Thursdays, and then he starts up his classes on Thursday nights for the fall term. So come on out and have fun dancing to what maybe Carl's last musical set at the Firehouse in 2006!

Also, dancers, don't forget, we're starting up our special 2-week "Mastering the Lindy Basics" Workshop at the Firehouse from 7-9p. Tonight, learn all your 6-count Lindy Basics in just 2 short hours. Workshop fees include FREE adm. to the Firehouse dance.

With a 2-week break between summer and fall Firehouse swing class sessions, we've decided to offer a special 2-week (4-hour) Lindy Basics Intensive Review to help some of our beginning students make the transition from the beginning to the intermediate Lindy classes.

Also, if it's been awhile since your last Lindy class and need a refresher course, or if are you relatively new to Lindy Hop, pick up dance steps easily, and want to learn your basics as quickly as possible, then perhaps you'll find our "Mastering the Lindy Basics" workshop very beneficial for you, too.

So whether you've been dancing for 6 weeks or for 6 years, it's always important to review your Lindy basics -- the foundation of our dance. Come join us next week if you feel inspired!

City Fest is this Sunday in Hillcrest, on Fifth Avenue between Upas and University, 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.

Union-Tribune event listing.

The main stage is at 5th & Robinson (dancing is on the pavement), and there is a VIP tent ($10) at 5th & Pennsylvania with more music.

They finally added the times for the main stage (but still nothing for the VIP stage) so this is updated from the original version I posted:
