Best of Boston

2007 Best Club, DJ Music

River Gods

Venture into this fancifully cluttered hole in the wall and you’re just as likely to hear early ’80s hip-hop set to a break-dance movie as you are a Bloc Party B-side. The DJs, who perch in an alcove above the crowd, establish the mood with eclectic sets that change nightly. Mondays are DJ battles, Wednesdays there’s American roots music, and on any other night the tracks might range from punk to Icelandic rock.
