Dancing will be the drink of choice at Haute to Death Saturday night

Haute to Death founders Jon Dones and Ash Nowak must have had Iggy Pop’s “Nightclubbing” on the brain when they started this decadent dance party eight years ago in the tight confines of the infamously gritty Temple Bar. Sweaty, carefree dancing, loud fashion, and vibrant party personalities meld together to the beat of new wave, Italo disco, electro, post-punk, and much more.

This time around they’ll be celebrating Nowak’s birthday, so they call patrons to “dress to inspire, perspire, and maybe bring some early Virgo vibes while you’re at it.” DJs will spin post-punk, new wave, Italo, electro, diva house, and “whatever.”

Starts at 10 p.m.; 2906 Cass Ave., Detroit; 313-832-2822 $2 before midnight, $3 after; 21 and older only.
