From Wesley Morris in the Boston Globe:
And the beat goes off
The strange story of what happened to dancing
...every night in cities all over the country, perfectly good music goes to waste on people content to stand there. More than one event function planner and wedding DJ has noticed that it’s harder to get the party started. In Boston, the city’s humongous twin dance clubs, Axis and Avalon, no longer even exist.... And for the first time in recent memory, we’re having a serious party-dance crisis.
