Juneau’s premier dance party phenomenon, Alaskan Scorcher, is returning to the Alaskan Bar tonight from 10:00 till last call, and they’ve got a special surprise just for KXLL listener!

Do you remember Scorcher’s Greatests Hits? Well get ready for Volume 2. The Scorcher dudes have 100 copies to dish out, first come, first serve. The compilation consists of Jerry and Todd’s favorite songs, handpicked Scorcher-style.

Tonight is also the homecoming of DJ Doctor DJ who’s come straight from Houston to bring down the house. Expect new music and new moves – no bluegrass allowed, only Bollywood-ska-rocksteady-soul goodness.
