Shake off the workweek and find out why Spin Magazine called Them Jeans' Tuesday Nights at Cinespace one of America's Best Parties.
Warming up the travertine to open the evening is the Bay Area's latest high-tech export, DJ Swayzee, who mixes R&B and new wave into a hot and tasty dance mix guaranteed to get you in the Friday night mood.
