Friday’s kick-off event will be held in DC 9 Nightclub at 1940 9th St., N.W. It will be reminiscent of the “Goth/industrial/techno/college” crowd that came to Tracks on Thursday and Friday nights, organizers say.

On Saturday night, a cocktail mixer, memorabilia display and silent auction will be held from 6-10 p.m. at Town Danceboutique at 2009 8th St., N.W. Tracks owner Marty Chernoff is scheduled to speak. A Tracks “reunion dance party” reflective of the mostly gay male crowed that came to Tracks on Saturday nights is scheduled to take place at Town immediately following the mixer and auction.

On Sunday, a dance event modeled after Tracks’ Sunday night venue, which attracted a large black gay and lesbian crowd, is scheduled to take place at 9 p.m. at Phase 1 of Dupont at 1415 22nd St., N.W.
