Phase 1 (525 8th St., S.E.) hosts “ShockTart,” a new monthly alternative LGBT dance party, starting at 7 p.m. on Saturday night. The party is organized by D.C.’s own “interactive discopunk” band Glitterlust, which performed at the sold-out “Spandex” party hosted by Brightest Young Things and Capital Pride.

Performances by a variety of avant-garde artists will begin at 9 p.m. London goth/glam band The Nancy Boys and Heidi Glum, drag daughter of Sharon Needles, are among the evening’s performers.

The DJs will spin an assortment of experimental, underground and indie dance beats. Guests will be given art supplies and musical instruments at the door to participate in spontaneous art and are also encouraged to bring their own. Though the event is at Phase 1, it is not lesbian-exclusive. It’s geared toward the entire LGBT crowd.

Tickets are $10 at the door.
