Rock Box Turns Uno!

Its' been a whole year of Rock Box Pelvic Thrust Thursdays at The Proletariat. Time does fly when your having fun! The night is filled with party music spun by resident dj's Stiletto, 7000ft, Dayta, myself and weekly guest. My whole approach with the night was to have a place where there is a blend of all kinda' party music to keep people on the dance floor and less serio. The music ranges from 80's, Ghetto Tech, Booty Bass, B-more, Hip Hop, Rock, Indie Rock, Pop, New Wave, and the list goes on. The whole pelvic thrust concept is a mock of how people in the era of Elvis thought his pelvic action was of the DEVIL and to sexual. Lets admit it, people like dancing nasty, simulating sexual thrusting/grinding and just plain ol' fun. The Proletariat isn't exactly known as a dance club, but Rock Box has transformed it into one every Thursday night. I guess the best way to describe the crowd at Rock Box would be fly girls, artist, hipsters, b-boys, students, drug users, scensters, punks, strippers, nerds, sluts, rock stars, alchoholics, fashionistas, geeks, losers and any other genre I forgot to mention.

Doors opened at 9pm and the first 20 ladies in the building recieved free grab bags with lots of goods including Proletariat t-shirts, free Pei Wei lettuce wrap cards, Oral B tooth brushes, stickers, cd's and more. There was also free pizza with the purchase of a drink. By 10:30pm the door had already cleared 100 and Stiletto got people on the floor with her track selections of booty bass, ghetto tech anthems. Followed by the lastest resident addition, DJ Dayta who kept the place in tact. By midnight, the place was crazy packed. Photographers Jordan from the Houston Chronicle and Matt Marand were in the building with the flash'n action. People love the camera, strike a pose! The guest m.c. for the night was Mr. Rico who loves to clown and cap on folks and just makes it a lot more relaxed when things aren't so serio. Atone of Cafe con leche warmed things up for Mel til 1am, it was like the dance floor never took a break. By the time Mel took the stage there was between 250-300 people going dumb. Mel came in with a introduction to give people a small breather and bam, time to tear the roof off! Hip Hop, Hyphy, B-more and some throw back classicks', Mel is a true dj that understands how to manage the crowd. Hints why we've brought him back 3 times.

I want to thank everyone that has supported Rock Box this last year, there is tons of yall to thank and you should know who you are. So the next time your looking for somewhere to go on Thursday night, hit up Rock Box, you might come out not remembering much if you like to drink a alot, you might shed some calories if you like to dance, you might hook up and go home with someone, you might not spend a dime on drinks, you might have your picture taken. Tell a friend, bring a friend, don't get left behind. $2 dollar wells and $3 dollar import drink specials from 10am-12pm will get your night started right. And there is never a cover unless it's a special event with a guest dj's from out of town thats always worth paying $5!
