Prepare to get up-close and personal. We’re fine dancing chest-to-chest on the packed floor of Fuzz, an LGBTQ-focused fete held second Fridays at a dive bar tucked into a downtown alley. Fuzz’s sensibility swings toward hipster cubs and otters (that’s gay-speak; Google it) plus ally party animals of all persuasions. They’re united by stellar set lists from DJs Brent Covington and Taffy incorporating indie dance, new wave, nostalgic pop and worth-discovering underground sounds.
