We love you Boston/Cambridge 🙂 The next DOTC is a 12 hour 4th of July bonanza complete with lots of food a legendary local DJ lineup, not to mention games, props + prizes!

8/23 DOTC DJ Sets Are Here!

If they say there’s no such thing as [cough] bad publicity [cough] then it appears we’ve finally arrived. Big shout to the haters for investing time and money into our promotional efforts! Nice doo doo guys, way to keep it clean and classy.

NOW, to all you wonderful folks who came to D.O.T.C. on 8/23: THANK YOU! You’re probably tired of hearing us always say that we can’t do it without you, but it’s so damn true. It makes us so psyched to have these crazy outdoor dance parties (in Boston/Cambridge no less) that we have to keep saying it over and over again so you know how serious we are. Last Saturday couldn’t have been a more beautiful summer night and despite some technical difficulties with the sound (sorry for that) the recordings of the sets finally came out right. Thanks again to all and especially these guys, some of Boston’s best DJs for holding it down just right. Enjoy!

Back On Track – DOTC Recap


I don’t think there could be a more appropriate title for this post.

First of all, DOTC returned to the Marsh Post after a brief hiatus, complete with the added visual stimulation of VJ Zebbler on 3 screens (see video above) and more than enough port-o-potties and beer outside to last the night. Pictures are up here (thanks Iris) and here (thanks JK) and as always a super-mega thank you goes out to everyone that came out and danced their asses off. You make us so proud to be able to throw these parties, there is no DOTC without your support!

Second of all, for our next DOTC on July 12th, we’re joined by Boston’s undisputed king of digging and BBE recording artist, DJ Kon of the On Track mixtape series fame. Kon will be playing deep dance music of all kinds from 8-10pm to setup the vibe just right and we’ll be posting some exclusive Kon mixes to get you in the mood the next couple weeks, so stay tuned.

RAIN OR SHINE – CASH ONLY BAR

Saturday, July 12th, Dancing on the Charles is in full effect with the forth installment of the 2008 summer event series.
