Kicks and Giggles is kicking off

DJs Ben Norman and Phil Reese are proud to present Kicks & Giggles, a new monthly dance party at The Looking Glass in Petworth.

Veteran Emcees Ben and Phil are bringing their quirky dance and fun pop stylings to a whole new part of the District, every second Saturday.

Expect prizes, surprises, lots of great music, and to wear the soles out of your dancing shoes!

The Looking Glass Lounge is the perfect location, with it's own quirky sensibilities -- much like our boys, Ben and Phil, it's cozy dance floor, and full menu! You can sip, sup, and shake every second Saturday night with Ben and Phil!

As a lover of pop oddities, Ben Norman has always found immense joy from showing them to others. From Guess to Halo to Uproar, he has been sharing his love of music with happy audiences.

Phil Reese is a resident DJ at JR's Bar on 17th Street, in the heart of the historic Dupont nightlife neighborhood. Phil is selector several nights a month there including Showtunes Mondays, two monthly pop nights, and pop with a queer edge every Thursday night.
