COOL SHOES PRESENTS TREASURE FINGERS
9 p.m., Downtown Music. $8-$10.

After almost a year and a half, Cool Shoes has settled into a steady groove. The monthly dance party no longer draws the hordes (it topped out at 450 last year), but instead a respectable 200-250 who keep the dance floor congested and sweaty. Those numbers should build back this week as organizers bring in their first big-name DJ, Treasure Fingers. From Atlanta and signed to A-Trak's buzzy Fool's Gold label, the DJ blew up last year with his debut, “Cross the Dancefloor,” an electro-house-infused disco jam built around a vocorded hook that doesn't quit: “Let me see you move it shake it cross the dance floor.” With bass-and-synth-heavy remixes of songs by everyone from Chromeo to Fergie to Estelle to Kid Cudi, dude's bound to keep it moving like perhaps never before at Cool Shoes. Bedrocks Deeter and Shawn Lee open, and as usual Cameron Holifield provides vivid, tripped-out video art. A new addition: Jeremy Hebert mans a free photo booth that we've heard is more than worth the price of admission.
