Love the 1990s? Break out your ripped jeans, flannel, and Doc Martens and go to Montclair Art Museum’s (MAM) ’90s Dance Party on Saturday, March 7. Inspired by the Museum’s current exhibition Come as You Are: Art of the 1990s, the first major museum survey of art from the pivotal decade, this party will take you back in the day.
From Nirvana to No Doubt, Backstreet Boys to Blink 182, and Smashing Pumpkins to Spin Doctors, “Saved by the 90s: A Party with The Bayside Tigers,” the Ultimate ’90s Tribute Band, will set the scene with all your favorite ’90s tunes. Then, DJ Gabriel Levy will keep you dancing until it’s time to peace out. You can Vogue, do The Humpty Dance, bust a move doing The Hammer, start a mosh pit, do your best Fly Girls imitation, or break out The Carlton. Whatever ’90s dance moves you show off, you’ll have a blast.
Fly graffiti canvases created by Montclair High School’s True Blue Arts Initiative, glow sticks, and slap bracelets will set the scence and transport you back to the decade. Enjoy late-night snacks and an open bar with NJ Beer, wine, and a specialty ’90s cocktail. MAM is also offering a raffle for 4 premium tickets to see Maroon 5 at the Izod Center the day after the ’90s Dance Party, on Sunday, March 8. The winner will be announced at the party. Earn one chance for $20 or six for $100. Raffle tickets can also be purchased online here.

New Uber users will receive $30 off one trip to or from the Montclair Art Museum using code MAM90s and current users can use promo code MAM90sParty to receive 10% off one ride the day of the event (up to $10, expires 3/8).
