The Phyrst To Host ‘For The Dancers’ Week February 22-27

The Phyrst will hold the first-ever “For The Dancers” week from February 22-27, tipping its green hat to the of-age students who will dance 46 hours FTK the week before.

Upon entry, eligible participants will show bouncers their dancer numbers to receive a green “FTD” wristband. The wristband will grant dancers free cover for the entire week.

“Underage dancers can give their numbers to a 21 year old friend,” Phyrst owner Mike Fullington said of the one-per-person deal. Participants must flash their wristbands at the door for free entry and live music all week.

The appreciation week is packed with live bands famous for their THON performances. Go Go Gadjet will kick off the week on Monday starting at 10:30 p.m., My Hero Zero will play at 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday, and The Rockets will perform at 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The weekend is full of doubleheaders, as JJ & Richie will play on Thursday from 8 p.m.-10 p.m. followed by the JJ Rupp Band at 10:30 p.m. Jason O. of My Hero Zero will play from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. on Friday, followed by Ted and the Hifi’s starting at 10:30 p.m., and Lenina Crowne will play State Patty’s Day from 7 p.m.-9 p.m., followed by Lowjack closing out the week at 10:30 p.m.

“We just wanted to give back to the dancers, and we felt like no one has ever done something like this,” Fullington said.
