Club Night: Dance

The Pill at Great Scott


1006_pill

The view this year hasn't been so pretty for the window-gazing door guy at Allston's Great Scott. First, Marty's Liquors packed it in and left a dull bunch of plywood in its place for a year. (Hail, hail, Kelly's Roast Beef.) Then, crosswalk buddies Uno's Pizzeria (sure, scoff, but their laid-back bar was Allston's snickeringly best-kept secret for years) folded. Hey, at least the McDonald's sign is still flickering. All the same, Friday nights can make all the urban decay go away. Boston's longest-running dance party broke ranks with the dance scene with a simple set of principles: loose Britpop and indie formats that pick up where your car stereo left off, bare-bones light-show theatrics, and no dress code. It's never failed to rule. But you obviously don't need us to tell you that.
