iPod Dance Party 

In Noel Coward's play Private Lives, a character famously remarks, "Extraordinary how potent cheap music is." Get a real understanding of that line at an iPod battle. It's like a breakdance or DJ battle but with far more crowd involvement. Two teams or competitors create a playlist of five songs each on their iPods, which they then surrender to a DJ with a mixer. The DJ plays a song from the first iPod and a song from the second, and the winning team is determined by the audience's reaction. Simple, right? But the science of selecting a crowd-pleaser is not always so straightforward. Fickle listeners may crave a campy beat that's just insistent enough to drive them off their sticky bar stools. Perhaps that late-'80s one-hit-wonder dance tune that's chock-full of hipster irony will turn out the dance floor better than that cool new track by the Streets you downloaded yesterday. Maybe not. Find out at 10 p.m. at Czar Bar (1531 Grand, 816-221-2244). For more information, see myspace.com/ipodbattlekc.
