I ♥ the ’90s Party at Madrone

Feeling nostalgic? Madrone Art Bar throws it back to the good old days of Britney Spears, high-top Converse sneakers, and high-pitched boy bands. DJs Samala, Mr. Grant, and Sonny Phono bump the best of ’90s hip-hop, rap, and pop till the wee hours of the morning, while VJ Teo fills the TV screens with images of long lost MTV music videos. Tickets are only five bucks, and wearing your best grungy flannel is highly recommended.

When: Friday, October 23rd, 9PM-2PM

Tickets: $5 at the door
