From Punk Favorites To Deep House Cuts, Party With Some Of The Most Prominent And Up-And-Coming DFW DJs Every Single Damn Day.

We’ve noticed a good amount of DJ sets making rounds all over the metroplex and we’ve seen how wild they can get.

We want in.

We though we’d make you a little calendar of some badass DJ nights to pull up to that will match your jam needs. DJs don’t always have to play House music or the latest Top 100 tracks. Sometimes, these curators will put you on new music and genres you’ll eventually fall in love with.

Dance the night away with a drink in your hand. If you miss a day, there’s always next week!

Curated by offparole and boyblk, Fort Worth’s weekly dance party at Curfew Bar is “for House lovers by House lovers.” Some of the best local DJs like C.B. Smooth, Rami, Harcrow and IAMYU perform here frequently in front laser strobe lights and of a giant screen that plays anime. Come get wild near Sundance Square … on a Monday night.
