Dishoom Bollywood Dance Party 

When: Fri., Feb. 5, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $10

After nearly a decade of performing at bhangra and "international" dance parties, DJ Rang found a new set of party people eager to connect. Now, at his DISHOOM parties, the dance-floor results range from healthy fitness to severe injury, either 1,800 calories burned according to a Fitbit or a knee popped out of socket. A dholi, or dhol drummer, is always by Rang's side, and VJ Kid Ethnic syncs archival Bollywood footage into staccato clips, giving Rang's rhythm and the dholi's beats a psychedelic visual choreography. The dudes in charge are a product of the South we live in, making DISHOOM an unforced representation of how Durham looks and feels on the dance floor. —Victoria Bouloubasis
