Description

WHAT IS GOING ON?
So glad you asked! Imagine dancing around your bedroom in your PJs, singing into a hairbrush. Now take that same feeling and put it into a dark room with tons of space, your friends, and a sweet sound system. That's No Lights No Lycra.

NLNL is a weekly dance party but in the least club-like setting possible—a substance-free, judgement-free, dance party in the dark. It's also a great workout and a perfect alternative to going to the gym. NLNL started in Australia some time back, and now you can scratch your dancing-in-the-dark itch in Austin too.

WHAT KIND OF MUSIC WILL BE PLAYED?
Our resident DJ Brian Blackout and a rotating cast of guest DJs play a wide-ranging mix of genres: indie, electropop, synthpop, disco, dusty rock + R&B records, regular funk, future funk, synthwave, new wave, many other waves, and much more. We’ll start slow, rev you up, then cool off, and we'll change tempos to try and keep you from getting TOO worn out. Dress comfy and bring water—it's a workout!

CAN I HEAR MIXES OF WHAT YOU’VE PLAYED IN THE PAST?
Yes! Some are here:

Also Brian Blackout made a DJ mix for inspiration:

WHERE & WHEN IS IT?
No Lights No Lycra Austin is held at Guan Yin Tea House in their spacious events room from 8:30 - 9:30 every Monday. Yes EVERY Monday, we are weekly. Guan Yin features a fantastic sound system, lovely staff, lots of room to move about, and many, many good vibes. It’s over in Airport by I-35. It does not feature a ton of parking, but there is ample nearby street parking nearby when it’s busy. Don’t worry, I have done it and lived to tell the tale, you will too.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
$10 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away from the dance floor for lack of funds.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
It doesn't matter what you wear. Remember, it's dark! Gym attire & loungewear is totally cool. We do ask that you leave your shoes in the hallway so be prepared for that. Just wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move (because you will be moving). Ok, yes, you can totally wear lycra if you want, but you don’t HAVE to, y’know?

WHAT MAKES NO LIGHTS NO LYCRA DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DANCE PARTIES?
The lights are off. This means no one's watching you, no one's judging you, and you can (AND SHOULD) shamelessly dance however you want.

There's no alcohol, no drugs, just movement and music.

It's open to all ages. No ticket purchase or RSVP required.

We ask that you keep all phones silent and all glowing devices in their un-glowy mode.

This is NOT an event for talking to people, hitting on people, or instagramming how much fun you're having. There's no ulterior motive except to dance, and you'll never have to dance around the group of people posing for selfies near a DJ booth.

People often come alone and dance alone (just like in all those songs!)
