Where It's At! Northern Soul Dance Party

, First Saturday of every month, 9:30 p.m.
In the early 1970s, an obsession with obscure American R&B records released the decade prior swept Northern England. The movement was dubbed “Northern Soul,” and forty years later, it still has momentum in the Bay Area. MissT, aka Tracy Parker of the Oakland record store VAMP, founded the “Where It’s At!” party five years ago at Mad Dog in the Fog in the Lower Haight. Six months ago, she resurrected it with fellow DJ Fernando Carpenter at Legionnaire Saloon (2272 Telegraph Ave., Oakland). In an email, Parker said the party “has been known to inspire soul trains, breakdance battles, and conga lines that weave in and out of fellow dancers and bar goers.” The Lower Bottoms Funk & Soul crew will join Parker and Carpenter behind the decks. free
