By slapping a bow on a party and calling it “The Gift,” SpaceSpin and M3, the promoters for tonight’s day-after-Xmas throwdown, are giving D.C. electronica fans the present they desperately crave: a chance to dance off those holiday pounds. (I will need to boogie straight through New Year’s Eve to burn off the truckload of sweets I plan to consume.) From drum ‘n’ bass to house to chillout, local crews like 2Tuff, Sonic Soul, Drive Safe, and Snowball Collective, as well as DJs like John Tab and DJ Entity, will provide the music you can dance to beginning at 9 p.m. at the Edge, 56 L St. SE. $12. (202) 488-1200. (Christopher Porter)
