To appreciate Party Rock Monday, you’ll need to dress the part

If you want to know what went down at Party Rock Monday, just listen to the first few verses of LMFAO’s “I Don’t Wanna Be”: “When I walk in the club, the people show me love ... I get looks from the ladies, daps from the dudes.” Yep, all of that definitely happened. And DJ Redfoo (of LMFAO) was dressed like it was the ’80s, though I couldn’t see if he had checkered shoes.

The DJ’s Party Rock concept delivered exactly what the name implies: a rockin’ party. Marquee’s main room was packed to the brim with no-lens-glasses-wearing, Red Bull-vodka-drinking party people. The club’s tables were decked out with inflatable zebras and guitars, foam horns and glowsticks galore. After Party Rock-approved DJ Air spun a superior opening set, Redfoo took to the tables with mega-hit “I’m in Miami, Bitch,” supplying the vocals himself. Soon the Party Rock Crew hopped on the go-go boxes to hype up the crowd, offering vodka shots to those in reach. Party Rock-themed go-gos and trippy, hallucinogenic visuals completed the event—an experience DJ Redfoo describes as “a way of celebrating life.”

So how exactly does one prepare to celebrate life Party Rock-style? Here are a few vital items you’ll want to invest in if you plan to roll with Redfoo and crew:

1. Eyewear with no lenses, preferably bedazzled, patterned or striped.

2. Some type of brilliantly colored pants; purple denim works just fine.

3. Very large jewelry—think “bling.”

4. Pleather. ’nuff said.

Think ’80s. I found the four essentials at Buffalo Exchange, Hot Topic, Ross and Savers.

So why should you add to your closet and opt for the all-out Party Rock experience? DJ Redfoo explains: “You can dress party animal and ... kind of let your freak out. You’re going to feel comfortable dancing and getting crazy.”
