Back that ass up

Shake 'n Bass at Backbooth
37 W. Pine St., 407-999-2570,
Cover: Free for ladies 18 and up, $4 for guys
Dress code: Come casual and ready to shake it off
Music: Tropical bass and vibes by resident DJ Big Makk
What it's like: When the weekend winds down, some folks like to put their feet up, but the only excuse for that at Backbooth on Sundays is if you're twerking while doing a handstand. Every Sunday, devoted dance hounds swarm to Backbooth for Big Makk's huge local hit, Shake 'n Bass, where the internationally acclaimed DJ experiments with new mixes and the party dependably erupts right from the start at 10 p.m. It's a brash and wild scene, and Big Makk's whims hold down the house while eager party people do their part to shake it up from all angles. Cuties abound, sweaty hands speckled with Xs are thrust in the air, and there's basically no purer way to party on a Sunday in this town. – Ashley Belanger
