Just Dance

A hot, hidden-away drum 'n' bass night

very Thursday night the Phoenix Landing’s barstools, tables, and dining customers (the pub serves lunch, dinner, and an Irish brunch on Saturdays and Sundays) are cleared out a bit earlier than usual. The lights are dimmed and the casual Irish sports bar transforms into a haven for underground electronic music fans. Since 1999 the Elements crew has brought in the hottest DJs from around the globe for one of the world’s longest-running Drum ‘n’ Bass Night. Dance-music fanatics flock there to party with friends (it’s 19+) and to enjoy some of the best beats in Boston. Another secret: Arrive before 9:30 and pay no cover. Things usually get going by 10:30. Modica


Some 36 million Americans, or 12 percent of the population, claim Irish ancestry, according to the Census Bureau. That’s six times the population of Ireland.
