THIS SAT: Brooklyn’s Best All-Ages, All-Day Party! 2pm-8pm @ BRIC 

76b771cf-7dff-45e3-8417-4c545f159375_spring_fever_final_printBRIC continues its series of House Parties, with special daytime activities, including family dance classes, film screenings, art making, and other participatory activities; and a nighttime musical main event, with a live band, DJ, and dance party.

BRIC, 647 Fulton St., Bklyn

Clean out the closets and get ready for warmer weather as we celebrate spring with family-friendly live music, film screenings, dance classes and more. Followed by an evening dance party by I Love Vinyl, their approach is mind-wide, foot-friendly and snap, crackly, poppin’; meaning that genre, time period and recognizability take a back seat to quality, taste and skill. Disco, house, soul, boogie, jazz/funk, hip hop, techno, new wave, new jack swing, Latin, electro and Afrobeat are woven into a cohesive, funky and irresistibly danceable sonic manifesto. Laptop-free since 2009.
