Steven Evans' Dance Party fundraiser for DCAC in Poughkeepsie, Friday, June 19 8pm


Steven Evans will be spinning out an evening full of '70's music and more on Friday night in Poughkeepsie. "A Night at Studio" is one of the two remaining "Out of the Box" fundraising events organized by and benefiting the Dutchess County Arts Council. The event will take place from 8-11pm at the Cuneen Hackett Arts Center Theatre at 12 Vassar St in Poughkeepsie. RSVP at 845.454.3222 or info@artsmidhudson.org.


As far as I can remember, Evans' last DJ gig was at last year's Spiegeltent up at Bard when he served up platter-fulls of David Bowie. A few years back, prior to the onset of the monthly Next Step Dance Parties hosted by the Piggy Bank in collaboration with the folks at Open Space (the next one scheduled to happen on June 20 as a fundraiser for Electric Windows), back when Beacon more closely resembled the village portrayed in the tv show Northern Exposure, Steven's (approximately quarterly) Dance Party spinning, also at the Piggy Bank, was a much welcomed respite from the sense of social-cabin fever that tended to build up back then.
