Join the harrassment-free neighborhood dance party.
DJ Ann spins music from 1957-1974 with genres ranging from Motown and soul, to R&B and garage rock. Homesick while attending graduate school in Columbus, Ohio, Ann started Heatwave in September of 2011.
She then brought her high-energy dance party back to her hometown of New Orleans in the summer of 2013.
What sets Heatwave apart from other dance parties throughout the city is that Ann actively advocates for a safe dancing space and even displays posters that encourage dancers to report any type of sexual harassment to either herself or a bartender.
You can check out Heatwave every second Saturday of the month at Twelve Mile Limit, 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., and every fourth Saturday of the month at Sidney’s Saloon, 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
