Each week, the Pittsburgh City Paper compiles a list of Pittsburgh dance parties for you and your crew to bust loose to the best bangers, EDM, pop hits, and more. (All events are 21 and over unless otherwise stated.)
And get your costumes ready, because this week we're also highlighting the grooviest, spookiest Halloween events in the Burgh. Just look for the little jack-o-lantern (🎃) to find out where you can get down with cool ghouls.
