RSVP on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/events/383398891688240/#!/events/383398891688240/ ^^The Anthology of Booty is a DJ crew in Washington DC seeking to create unique and welcoming social spaces. Our crew is a mix of people from many different backgrounds, and we are painfully aware of how social spaces like dances, clubs, and bars have been used to keep people apart and maintain social dynamics such as racism, misogyny, and homophobia. We are committed to resisting these negative forces by creating spaces for dancing, community-building, kickin' it, and art with an emphasis on inclusion and respect. ^^ ++This is a benefit towards the Wonderbox space itself, which hopefully can support rad community oriented projects like ours in the coming year.++ ** In order for us to work with the neighborhood and ensure the longevity of the party, please be aware that a police car will be present in the alley for most of the night. On one hand this is not much different than any of our neighborhoods, but we mention it because we have strong feelings about the cops like you may.**
Hey guys...I wanna get out more and check some good bands...Where's the best place?
Thanx to everyone that came out to Swenka on Sunday night! Look forward to more Afropunk connection. By the way, what's next?! Music share meet-up perhaps?!

In the meantime, I'm djaying this MAD event. Check it out!
On Sunday February 19, 2012 (President's Day Weekend) we a go do this propa!
SWENKA! is a new celebrating the past, gets down with the present, and visualizes the future of African dance riddims, beats, and culture.
All across the diaspora, the fires of innovation and creativity in music continue to burn. Today we just fuel the flames with laptops, flash drives, smartphones, Soundcloud, Youtube, and international flights between Europe, the US, Lagos, Accra, Freetown, JoBerg, Capetown, Luanda and more destinations.
Our DJs for the inaugural session are:
Underdog (Lunchbox Theory, BBC Radio)Mothershiester (Anthology of Booty, Africa Is Not A Country)Brian Senyo (Senyomusic.com, The KirkOut)
We’ll be cranking the sounds Afrobeat, Soukous, Hip Life, Naija, Afro house, Kwaito, Coupe Decale, Kuduro, Afropop, UK Funky, it’s free to get in and it's going on down at The Wonderland Ballroom, 1101 Kenyon Street NW, Washington DC.Come out, wear your wax print, beads, wave your flags, and get #Swenka!
The name Swenka! is based on and takes inspiration from the Swenkas from South Africa, which are men who dress up and compete to showcase their style, class, self respect for themselves and their community. There is an amazing documentary on the Swenkas that you should absolutely see. Read more about them here.
