Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

On Saturday night, the Meadowlark was once again invaded by Neon Knights, the monthly dance romper put together by DJ Shannon Kelly. The crowd in the basement venue morphed throughout the night from a snug-fitting sweat-fest of tightly packed, jittering bodies to a reasonably thinned-out space, giving room for those with the energy to really let loose.

The DJ sets were bracketed by Kelly with a wild set of dubstep and remixed pop hits, while special guests London Dungeon and Mario Zoots kept the crowd moving with infectious beats and unrelenting energy. A psychedelic light show by AVVC put everyone in the mood, and the high fashion of the crowd surely owed a significant debt to the night's sponsors, Fancy Tiger.
