Want to dance tonight?

So much dancing to be done! I wouldn't dare tell you how, but here's where:

TONIGHT
DJ Tabone — WRFG-FM (89.3)'s own breaks out of the "Soul Chamber" to bring a mix of lavish lounge, soul and house to Loews Hotel. Perfect way to start the evening. Free. 6-10 p.m. 1065 Peachtree St. 404-745-5000.

Afrique Electrique — Salah Ananse is going to be a busy bee this weekend, starting at the "Love Edition" of Afrique Electrique. DJ 1derful kicks things off. If you get there early, you may find dinner specials from Rheda Chikhaoui, aka Ray, the gracious and make-you-feel-at-home co-owner of Social. You'll have worked up an appetite by the end of the night with Salah's mix of house, Afrobeat and Afropop. Free before 11 with RSVP to soulsessions@bellsouth.net, $5 after. 10 p.m. Social Resto, 12 W. Peachtree Place. 404-525-2246.

SATURDAY
The Gathering: Returns — Ramon Rawsoul (what up, Chi-Town!), who puts on the annual House in the Park picnic (he's already planning the 2011 edition!), and NDATL's Kai Alce host tonight, with guest DJ Kevin Latham. The "return" is in reference to the event's late-night origins. The venue is a loft-style building protected from would-be party crashers trying to shut issh down, ensuring that authentic underground party feel. Plus, there's food by Royal Smoke. $7. 11 p.m. 602 Marietta St.

Love's House Affair Pre-Valentine's Day Party — There's nothing like a venue with mirrors. It's not about vanity, but expression. Makes me miss the Mark so much. But Aim aims to please with reflection for your dancing direction and wood floors. DJs Omega Black from WRFG, Yusef, Michael Alan and Taurus the Bull provide the motivation for movement. It's hosted by Salah, and goes late. $10 for 2, $8 solo. 10 p.m. Aim Studio, 383-B Marietta St. (next to Club Inferno). 770-374-1365.

Squirm — With more than 20 years of spinning behind him, Superfreq co-founder Mr. C keeps the house sound moving forward. Expect tinges of techno, which will combine perfectly with the sexy venue. Longtime Atlanta DJs Michael Scott and Kevin O kick things off. $7-$10. 10 p.m. Aurum Lounge, 915 Peachtree St. 404-815-9426. squirmatlantawithmrc.eventbrite.com.
