Swappin' Boots hosted by The Queer Social Club
The Queer Social Club is hosting the singles two-step night Swappin' Boots! Come out, serve, and scoot to the swinging sounds of Nick Levine (Jodi) as they spin country hits all night long.
Pull out that vintage cowboy hat, shine up that bespoke bolo, and come pardner-up to dance with someone new and hang with fellow country-queers.
If you need a bit of liquid courage, Judson & Moore's house distilled spirits and handmade cocktails will be available from the bar. If you don't know the steps, sign up for lessons before the night starts from Billingsley & Earp.

ABOUT THE LESSONS
The Texas two-step is a fun partner dance that is easy to learn, even if you have two left boots. By the end of the group class you'll be armed with the basics of leading/following, two-step footwork, and an easy turn or two; everything you need to feel comfortable two-steppin'. After the lesson, the dance floor will open and a rotating cast of DJs will take over, spinning vintage country for you to practice.
BILLINGSLEY & EARP
Billingsley & Earp is the duo project of Michelle Billingsley and Wild Earp, two Chicago-based musicians with a fancy for the Texas two-step. In fact, that's exactly how these two met. When they're not playing duets together around the area or touring with their own bands around the country, you'll catch them honky-tonkin' to country & western music right here in the city.
