Saturdays at Thursday's aren't exactly '80s Night. The Infamous Dark Wave is bigger than that -- the music is important, but it's the crowd that's made the weekly dance party an Akron favorite. "It's not unheard of for me to follow Michael Jackson with a Siouxsie and the Banshees song," says DJ Mario Nemr. "We draw the kind of crowd who will stay on the floor for both. It's 20 years of alternative and dance music, from the Cure to Modest Mouse." If the dance floor isn't full at 11, it will be by midnight.
