Tuesday, Feb. 12 – Phat-N-Jazzy 19th Anniversary
with J. Boogie, DJ BMF, Stereo 77
54 N. Orange Ave.
Orlando felt the lag downtown when the unparalleled, funky party that was Phat Tuesdays halted in mid-2011. But the promoters and DJs who have collectively made Phat-N-Jazzy the city’s most dependable dance night since 1994 are back with an anniversary party at their old digs, the Social, celebrating 19 years of soul-stirring. The night includes an exclusive Florida DJ set by San Fran’s J. Boogie’s Dubtronic Science, a revolutionary turntable veteran whose renowned style is likely to inspire many local DJs to step it up. Then again, P-N-J’s resident spinning force DJ BMF could teach a master class himself. Bonus: DJ BMF resurrected Phat-N-Jazzy late last month, so we have the lucky fate of feeling his jazzy beats every Tuesday at Elixir. Happy anniversary, Phat-N-Jazzy, but we’re confused – should we bring a gift to mark the date or a potted plant to welcome you to your new home? – Ashley Belanger
