253HEART MUSIC FEST KICKOFF >>>

"House music is not a business; it's a community of people who like to dance. In order for the community to maintain and grow, the people that make up this community have to continually contribute," explains local DJ and promoter Chris Savenetti. "And that contribution can be anything from coming to dance to the music, to introducing others to this sound, to providing a night for the community to gather, to producing the music, or from a DJ standpoint, playing the music provided by the community. It is circular, and is essential for survival, because without one of those elements it cannot continue."

Savenetti loves house music. He's been spinning it since the dawn of time. And he will continue to spin it until the end of time.

"DJ dAb and I will continue to spin and support house music in the South Sound," he says, a little depressed after his beloved house music home, Tempest Lounge, closed this summer.

For those who would enjoy a little Savenetti house should drop by Dorky's Arcade Wednesday night. Savenetti is producing the DJ portion of this year's 253heart Music Festival. "This will be the first DJ night ever for the festival," says Savenetti.

Savenetti will spin alongside DJs Mr. Melanin, dAb, Deron "Suga" Jones, D:Fi and Ninja Kat. Besides house music, expect drum 'n' bass, jazzy rhythms, soul, funk and electro dance. 

Why Dorky's?

"Why not?" replies Savenetti. "It's an awesome place. Play games, listen to music, drink beer."

Admission to the 253Heart Music Festival DJ night, as well as all the live music venues during the three-day festival, is two cans of non-perishable food earmarked for local food banks.

"There's really great music being made every day. House music is not for everybody, and that is fine, but we're not going to compromise the music to make it appeal to everyone. It's for people who like to dance and have fun," says Savenetti

Sounds like a plan.

DORKY'S ARCADE, WEDNESDAY, NOV. 21, 9 P.M., ALL AGES, BEER AND WINE FOR 21+, TWO CANS OF FOOD ADMISSION, 754 PACIFIC AVE., TACOMA, 253.627.4156
