Way down deep, inside the underground, the dance-floor ruler has yet to be crowned. To settle the score once and for all, 10.M and Sam “the Man” Burns answer the call. Not just a battle between man and machine, it’s a funk coup d’etat like you nevah seen. The live DJ and the funk collective will fill State of the Union with their musical invective. Turntablist vs. instrumentalist? You ask, “What’s this?” A call for futurists. A strange experiment. A complete environment. Dancers clad in extraterrestrial attire will fill the space and take your mind higher. Prizes for the most insane accoutrements. The middle finger to bourgeois dilettantes. It’s an open invitation to house and funk-rock fans. Let your ass follow the rest and come prepared to dance. At 8 p.m. at State of the Union, 1357 U St. NW. $5. (202) 588-8810. (Holly Bass)
