First Place: Chris Enriquez Christine Nguyen
Second Place: Alex Fernandez Kim Tran
Third Place: Chris Tram Eva Cheng

We hope our first place winners enjoy their tickets to the San Francisco Lindy Exchange! Also, a big "thank you" to our judges: Eddie, Emily, Pinar, Andrea W., Audrey, and Trevor!

1. THIS WEEK: July 1st - BAND NIGHT - Le Jazz Hot! DJ Trevor! Woo hoo!

They're back! The Jazz Hot (sometimes known as The Hot Club of San Francisco) plays Gypsy jazz music inspired by Django Reinhardt. They are dedicated to preserving and educating the masses about Django and his music. On their website, they say that "once you hear it, you can't forget it. It is sophisticated, yet it has a sentimental quality. It is delicate, but the rhythms are played at breakneck speed. It has a swinging, jazzy feel but many of the songs are waltzes." Flamboyant and melancholy, this music has a depth that most will find touches their core. Join us on Wednesday, July 1st on the big dance floor for Band Night!
