And the winner is…
125 12th Ave. N.Nashville, TN 37203
This dance club located on 12th Avenue has been making headlines since it's opening on New Year's Eve 2009 for throwing some of the biggest bashes in town, particularly their Halloween block parties that have welcomed such headlining acts as Girl Talk, Ying Yang Twins and Warren G. But even between holidays, their weekly house parties featuring some of the city's best DJs continually attract Nashville's beat lovers.
There's no shortage of live music in downtown Nashville. Just visit any one of the honky tonks on lower Broadway, including Tootsies, The Stage, Second Fiddle or Robert's Western World where it doesn't matter what time of day it is or what day of the week it is, you can always find someone ready to boot scoot boogy.
Its been two years since the guys of Nashvilles Electric Western Records started a humble dance night at The 5 Spot called Keep On Movin', dedicated to spinning the best 50s and 60s rock and roll, soul, doo-wop and thelike. Its since become the hippest, sweatiest way to thumb your nose at the workweek, with local musicians including Jacob Jones, Reno Bo and Brendan Benson manning the decks over its two-year existence.
Ever wonder what's going on at 12th and Porter on the weekends when people and throbbing dance music are pouring out of the bar and into the streets? It's a Y2K party and it's hosted by a beloved local dj, Coach, each and every Saturday night.
