80s Video Dance Attack is in the Crystal Ballroom Friday May 31! Watch 80s music videos projected onto multiple giant screens while dancing on the Crystal Ballroom’s famous floating floor! Coat Check available.

Before it mutated into a weaponized haze of reality shows, MTV aired a novelty known as the music video. These bite-sized works of art, which married pop songs to striking imagery, revolutionized the entertainment industry and ushered in an era of music known as “new wave.” For the task of curating and introducing these fresh sounds and flamboyant sights to audiences, MTV even created its own version of the disc jockey—the VJ. Though MTV has sent its stable of video jockeys out to pasture, VJ Kittyrox carries the pastel, shoulder-padded torch of Adam Curry and Nina Blackwood as she masterminds the 80s Video Dance Attack.

For the last seven years, this popular shindig has united generations of Portlandians with its five-hour feast of ’80s-centric sensation. Across 10-foot screens, VJ Kittyrox projects classic videos from artists such as Duran Duran and Michael Jackson as audiences of Breakfast Clubbers and Pretty in Pinkers perfect their cabbage patch, running man, and Pat Benatar shimmies. A bombastic, thumping sound system and a dazzling light show accentuate the time warp as audiences deck themselves in ’80s garb and shake away memories of unsolved rubik’s cubes.

    I would love these tickets because I just turned 21 and am trying to “find myself” in the Portland night life…I also want an excuse to dress like Richard Simmons

    recently went to the 80’s prom at Kennedy school and loved it! “Ain’t nothin’ gonna break my stride, Nobody’s gonna slow me down, oh-no, I got to keep on movin'” — Matthew Wilder

    I love the 80s Video Dance Attack! I just moved back to town, and I was never able to find anything quite like it in Texas. I’d love to go back and show my boyfriend one of the awesome dance parties in Portland.

    I just moved to Portland three days ago from Michigan and am in need of an 80’s dance outing.

    My friends say RELAX..don’t do it but it’s my 44th Birthday weekend and nobody knows 80’s dance music like we do!

  16. Jessica May 30, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

    I would love to win because I need a taste of moving for fun and not just to get somewhere. Not having a car means I need dancing more…

    Because when that ball-baring floor double-jumps you into the air as you belt out the lyrics to Livin’ on a Prayer, those weekday blues get shaken off to the ground. …plus, I look great in a light blue blazer.
