      No Lights No Lycra

      After 16 months of streaming, No Lights No Lycra ATX at last returns to in-person dance parties! It's a substance-free, judgment-free dance party in the dark for the pure joy of dancing. It’s a DJ night that’s not at the club, a workout that’s not at the gym, a personal meditation that’s anything but silent.
      Mondays, 8:30-10pm. $10 suggested donation.  
      West China Tea, 4706 N. I-35
