No Scrubs 90s Dance Party
No Scrubs 90s Dance Party began in 2003 as a one-off concept party by friends and DJ partners Will Eastman and Brian Billion. The idea was simple: play both guilty pleasures and underground classics you listened to growing up in the 90’s: Salt N Pepa and Nirvana. Ace of Base and Happy Mondays. The Prodigy and Biggie.
By its third edition, the party began to sell out the Black Cat back stage and, later, the Cat’s mainstage. In 2009, the party moved to the spacious 9:30 Club, whose sound and light systems are simply incredible, and quickly filled it with a legion of happy revelers, too.
It is now the largest and longest running 90s party in DC. Rather than host No Scrubs weekly or monthly, Eastman and Billion insist on keeping the party occasional and as guilty a pleasure as they want it to be.
