Dance Jam pays tribute to the divas

DANCE JAM PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE DIVAS

Tuesday, 9 p.m. Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass. Ave., Cambridge. $5 donation at the door.
617-868-6739, www.middlesexlounge.us

The deal: In celebration of International Women’s Day, Eli Goldstein and Charles Levine of the Boston-based electronic duo Soul Clap will host Dance Jam at Middlesex Lounge. Various versions of the event have been held since 2005, and in various cities — London and Berlin, to name a couple. This version, in particular, will pay homage to divas of the past. Half of the playlist will consist of funk, boogie, and disco from the ’80s, the other half hip-hop, R&B, and house from the ’90s. There will be a $5 donation at the door to benefit the Red Thread Foundation for Women, which offers fellowships to “college-bound women of international backgrounds.”

The venue: “It has one big dance floor,” says Goldstein, “and it’s great because the DJ booth is right on it, next to the crowd.” Central Square is great too, he says, because “it really has no dress code, it doesn’t have rude bouncers, and there aren’t any expectations about music.”

Three songs you’re likely to hear: “Finally” by CeCe Peniston; “What Have You Done for Me Lately?” by Janet Jackson; “Rock the Boat” by Aaliyah

The tip: The DJs strongly encourage that you come dressed up in ’80s or ’90s garb. In fact, if you do, you will receive a free mix CD they have compiled specially for the event.
