Friendly Fires

Its summertime and the dancing is easy. Hope you guys are getting out and dancing. There's a good buzz in the city this summer with new clubs and new parties abuzz. That means there is no shortage of all night (and all day) dance parties for you to choose from. House, disco, techno, or weirdo beardo...its all on offer and I hope you've been getting your groove on. I know I have. Come say hi at one of the upcoming People Don't Dance No More events in NYC or when I'm in Paris.
