Dance Party

Six events to help you get your groove on this week.


Hot Chip  

Santos Party House; 4/21 at 8 p.m.; 96 Lafayette St., nr. Walker St.; 212-584-5492
Her milkshake will bring all the boys (and girls) to Santos, especially to hear new material off her forthcoming album, Flesh Tone. This is an intimate setting for a Grammy-nominated lady who has sold over 3 million albums, and has collaborations under her belt with N.E.R.D., Busta Rhymes, and Nas, so we don't have to tell you to get there early to grab a good spot. But we just did.

Santos Party House; 4/22 at 11 p.m.; 96 Lafayette St., nr. Walker St., 212-584-5492
This eclectic dance-happy duo hails from Providence, and now resides in Brooklyn (not to be confused with the now-defunct goth band from Japan). The evening’s a record-release party for No Más, Javelin’s debut album on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label.

Basement Bhangra Lucky 13 Birthday Bash
Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza; 4/23 at 9 p.m.; 17 Irving Pl., at 15th St.; 212-777-6800
D.J. Rekha isn't the lauded queen of South Asian beats for nothing: The giddy grooves that drive her monthly Bhangra, Dub, Dancehall, and Hip-Hop party draw lines around the block at SOB's. For one night only to celebrate her thirteenth anniversary she's moved the party to a bigger space—Irving Plaza—and she welcomes Nina Sky, Tabla Guy, Max Glazer, Ranbir S., Bollywood Axion and Meetu Chilana.

Hot Chip DJ Set
Webster Hall; 4/23 at 10 p.m.; 125 E. 11th St., nr. Third Ave.; 212-353-1600
Their shows at Terminal 5 are sold out, but never fear: you can catch the Brit electro-poppers at an after-party DJing with Juan Maclean (who has a new album out on K7! Records) and the Fixed party guys. And, even better, you can get in for $1 before midnight if you RSVP here.

Rock the Bowl
Brooklyn Bowl; 4/26 at 7 p.m.; 61 Wythe Ave., nr. nr. N. 11th St. 718-963-3369
Join Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra (who are also the amazing house band in Broadway's Fela!), Bajah + the Dry Eye Crew, Eclectic Method, Geologist (from Animal Collective) and more as they raise money for the Ubuntu Education Fund. Tickets include an open bar and all-you-can eat Blue Ribbon fried chicken, oysters, and New Orleans shrimp. If you need more convincing check out this adorable promo video. For the children!

Amanda Blank
The Bell House; 4/26 at 7:30 p.m.; 149 7th St., nr. Second Ave., 718-643-6510
The rambunctious and multi-talented Ms. Blank also has a pretty severe potty mouth. Tonight she uses it for a good cause: a benefit for the Keep a Breast foundation, with MNDR and Pacific Theater.
