Hipshaker’s 16th Anniversary

Daily from Aug. 24-25
9 p.m.-2 a.m.
Barhopping, Music, DJ, Funk

After 16 years, Hipshaker is still going strong. The monthly dance night champions soul, R&B, and funk deep cuts from the ’60s and ’70s, all spun via the original 45 rpm vinyl. As one of the longest running events of its kind in the U.S., they’re celebrating this weekend with two days of music at their home base, the Kitty Cat Klub. Each evening, Hipshaker founders Greg Waletski, George Rodriguez, and Brian Engel will spin tunes, as will a handful of guest DJs. Keep the party going through Sunday, where Barely Bros Records in St. Paul will host a barbecue and record swap during the day. 21+.
