The weekend is upon us once again, and so it's time to hit up our watering holes and discos with the sole focus of partying with Venga Bus-ian fervor. Learn your '90s dance pop so you can get that reference.

For those of you who dance like nobody's watching, in hopes that everybody's watching, party pied piper May Star will host Diamond Dust on Saturday, June 16, at Hillcrest's newest club, Kitty Diamond. The venue's name may sound like the kind of place SNL's city correspondent, Stefon, would recommend, but since it's still not officially open for business (this is just a preview party for what's to come), we can't be sure if Furkles (Fat Urkles) or human fire hydrants (Google it) will be in attendance. But there will be two rooms thumping electro indie and disco jams all night and a fashion show featuring local designer duds.

If you're the type that calls Stingaree a second home—which means your first home is probably in Pacific Beach—the Downtown club will host rap act Cali Swag District on Friday, June 15. They'll perform their biggest (read: only) hit, "Teach Me How to Dougie" for the club rats. Our associate editor, Kelly Davis, misread the title as "Teach Me How to Doogie," which we think would make a much better, albeit nerdier, song. Where's Weird Al when you need him? YouTube the ditty and try to learn the dance before heading out. You may find a great clip of Michelle Obama getting her Dougie on. She's really good at it.

When Monday rolls along, you might be over all those oonce-oonce club sounds. Replace them with the sulky song stylings of the godfather of upbeat irritable '80s at The Rivera Supper Club's Morrissey Monday. Hear hits by Moz and The Smiths as sung by Kevin Kavanaugh. You may not be able to keep from singing along. Luckily, that sort of behavior is encouraged.
