At this point so much internet ink has been used on BYT explaining just how much fun FATBACK is that, frankly, you all should have motivated and went at least once by now. In which case, I don’t NEED TO explain to you just how much fun it is. You KNOW.
Still, of all the fun Fatback times, the anniversary is my favorite and this is because – well, they give you more room to dance. With a full building take over and more DJ stations so all the boys really get to spread their funky wings, it starts, in spite of it’s size, seeming as much fun as when, ONLY YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS knew about the party and doing cartwheels at least seemed like a possibility.
And all that’s left for you to do is make sure you make the most of it. Pro tips include: breathable fabrics and minimal clothing, showing up EARLY to beat the lines and spit all over your dance floor territory, hydrating, and treating every song like it is your favorite (because, at that moment, lets face it-IT IS)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GUYS. and here’s to many more:
