Funky Buddha Lounge
If you’re going out on a Tuesday night, you’re either in the lucky minority that doesn’t have to get up early for school or work or you’re so into whatever’s going on you’d rather toil hungover than miss out. Outdanced! is for the latter. For a little over a year, every Tuesday night at the Funky Buddha, hosts Scott Cramer and Jillian Valentino have booked the kind of acts that show up on fashiony New York party blogs—Dandi Wind, Uffie, Sophia Lamar, Crystal Castles, Peaches. On a Saturday, any one of them would make the club a goddamn nightmare, but Tuesday events weed out the weekend warriors—though Outdanced! still sells out occasionally. Even on a slow night, you’ll find a mixed, enthusiastic crowd with plenty of good-looking gays. The ratio is definitely skewed toward fashion whores, but who wants to talk about books at a nightclub anyway? Tuesdays, 9 or 10 PM, Funky Buddha Lounge, 728 W. Grand, 312-666-1695, myspace.com/outdanced, $5-$10. —Liz Armstrong
